When the rooster is away, who is there to ring in the day? Cock-a-Doodle Oops is the humorous tale of a community of farm animals who band together to help out a rooster who is badly in need of a vacation. How hard can it be to wake up a sleeping farmer? While the rooster is gone, the pig, cow, sheep, and other farm animals attempt to rouse Farmer McPeeper with cock-a-doodle SQUEAL, "cock-a-doodle MOO," and cock-a-doodle BAAAA, with hilarious results. The irresistible humor in this barnyard comedy builds vocabulary while encouraging children to cock-a-doodle-uh-oh along with the silly farm animals.
