Pepper strutted boldly down the feed alley toward the boys, crowing and flapping his colorful wings with dignity. The rooster had been ruling the barnyard animals for a number of years, and he was as proud and kingly as ever.

"Can he fly?" Brian asked.

"I don't know," Melvin admitted. "I never saw him fly, but surely, being a bird, he should be able to fly." Suddenly he got an idea. "Why not take pepper up the forty-foot silo and let him slowly float down to the ground? That would be a good way to see if he can fly."

The boys caught the big rooster, and Melvin hurried up the silo to try out his plan. But the experiment didn't turn out as he thought it would, and two sober boys were left with the results of their careless and hasty actions.

The Rooster's Fate and Other Stories is a collection of forty well-written stories that will help children see the importance of right attitudes toward themselves, and their responsibilities, their circumstances, their siblings, and their peers. Written for ten- to fourteen-year-olds.
