Rooster Wore Skinny Jeans

Be yourself and if that means wearing skinny jeans that make you the butt of jokes from your farmyard friends then so be it.
That’s the conclusion the resident rooster of Rosemary Mill farm comes to after strutting his stuff in his newly delivered denims with their gold stitching, and being on the receiving end of the other animals’ cutting comments.
Having run for cover and taken stock of himself in his skinnies,
the rooster decides to cock a snook at those micky takers – with surprising results.
Jessie Miller’s unfaltering rhyme rollicks along with a sparkle to match the stitching on Rooster’s jeans and if my audiences’ reactions are anything to go by, she has a winner here.
Exuberantly executed scenes of the rooster hero sporting his new purchase brought on fits of giggles from my listeners, young
and not so young; and I suspect adult readers aloud will be rushing to the nearest mirror in their skinnies to see how their rear view compares with fashionista, Rooster’s.
