Walter Wangerin Jr.is the National Book Award-winning author of The Book of the Dun Cow. His other books include The Book of God, Ragman and Other Cries of Faith, and Miz Lil and the Chronicles of Grace.
WangerinÕs allegory of good and evil pits Chauntecleer, the mighty rooster, against the nefarious and serpentine Wyrm. In a time before humans, Chauntecleer is the only one who stands in the way of Wyrm as it breaks free from its earthly prison and enacts its devious influence upon the innocent animals of the world. WangerinÕs prose proves enjoyable despite a heavy-handed religious overtone. Paul Michael enlivens the text with a deep, robust voice that keeps a good pace. He does justice to the verbose and powerful persona of Chauntecleer. However, inexplicably, he adds a Southern twang to many of the charactersÕ speaking parts, which does not seem to be justified by the text.

I'm not entirely sure how to describe this story. It is about good versus evil but you could guess that from the synopsis. Read morePublished 18 months ago by Rose
If like me, you've thought Christian fiction really sucks, you need to discover Walter Wangerin (anong others). This is good thoughtful prose by anyone's standards. Read morePublished on April 28 2004 by James R. V. Matichuk
This book, quite simply, is amazingly profound and wonderful genuine. The characters are all archtypal but nonetheless deep and extremely compelling. Read morePublished on Aug. 28 2003 by Michael B
This was a great book. Wangerin writes in a style that makes you giggle. Whimsical wording and some words that you don't know the meaning of make this book just plain fun. Read morePublished on March 20 2003 by caitlin
