[Editor's Note: The following is a combined review with ELVIS THE ROOSTER ALMOST GOES TO HEAVEN.]--In these popular children's books, we meet Elvis, a proud and confident rooster. In the first book Elvis is brought low when it appears that the sun can rise without him; in the second he learns the power of "please" and "thank you" when dealing with others. Narrator Barbara Caruso does a terrific job creating the funny voices in these tales. She growls, gasps, crows, coughs, scoffs, and generally struts her vocal stuff in a way that does Elvis proud. Light sound effects and Caruso's steady, humorous narration make this a great choice for young readers, who will enjoy the illustrations as the story unfolds.
