One of my favourite picture books in the library is definitely Little Rooster’s Diamond Button. If you’ve taken part in Story Sparklers with me you’ve probably had this book read to you already, and made a little rooster with a shiny gemstone to bring home with you.
Adapted from a Hungarian folktale, this wacky story tells the story of a little rooster who finds a diamond button and decides to give it to his mistress, until the greedy king turns up and takes the diamond button for himself. Well, little does the King know the rooster has a magic stomach and won’t be pushed around!
Read on as the rooster uses his magic stomach to escape from increasingly absurd ways that the king tries to get rid of him. The rooster simply won't be stopped, he wants his diamond button back!
This book is perfect to read aloud to any kid who likes a bit of silliness, and it is full of colourful and definitely unique pictures.
