“I wanted these jeans, and I bought them for me.”
“Their opinions don’t matter. I’ll show them! They’ll see!”
Rooster is excited to receive a pair of very skinny jeans in the post. When the other farmyard animals begin to ridicule him, he begins to doubt himself and hides away from their laughter. However, he soon realises that he bought the jeans because he liked them and not for anyone else. Strutting out, proudly, the other animals soon see how confident Rooster is and how great his jeans look and are full of admiration.
By using rhyming couplets throughout the book, the author creates a sing-song quality to the tale. Eye-catching illustrations draw the in the eye, whilst the use of cheeky, fun language that will entertain young children, adds to its humour. The message that we can be ourselves is clearly and humorously made.
