A witty and warm tell-the-time book, created by Kes Gray, author of the bestselling Oi Frog, and Mary McQuillan.

Cluck O' Clock is a tell-the-time book with a difference. It recounts a day in the life of a group of chickens - each with individual and distinct personalities - as they fill their lives with food, exercise, visiting - and waiting for the fox.

Teaches children to tell the time in a fun, but informative way.

'... teachers and librarians will be happy to give this tale a few minutes in story hours about chickens or clocks'. - Kirkus Reviews

Gray's clever rhyming couplets bounce right along as they conjure breezy barnyard scenarios. In her cross-hatched, textured painting, McQuillan blends inviting views of sunny blue sky and verdant pasture.
