Super Rooster Saves the Day By Maureen Wright Illustrated By Rob McClurkan

Back of Book:
Ralph the rooster has big dreams of becoming a superhero. But the other farm animals aren’t so sure—except for Rosie the pig, that is. She’s Ralph’s best friend, and she believes in him. As Ralph and Rosie hang around the farm, there are just no opportunities to be a superhero and save the day…until the farmer turns on the radio, and the “Chicken Dance” song starts playing. POW-WOW! Suddenly it seems that Ralph may have some superpowers after all…or does he? Join Ralph and Rosie as they prove that believing in yourself and being a good friend is what makes a true superhero.

“Super Rooster Saves the Day” by Maureen Wright is a delightful story about friendship and growth mindset. Ralph the rooster has big dreams of being a superhero. Sadly, his days are filled with boring bird things. The only animal who believes in him is his best friend Rosie the pig One day the farmer turns on the radio, and the “Chicken Dance” song starts playing. POW-WOW! Suddenly it seems like Ralph has the power the save the day. When Ralph and Rosie come across crows eating all the corn, they know that its Ralphs opportunity to truly be a superhero. It will take some quick thinking and the help of a friend for Ralph to fulfill his dream.
