(#7) Uncle Rooster by Tami Canaday
Both parable play and fantastic spectacle, warning of the reality of torture and community erosion as seen through the lens of a children’s fable. The tale takes place in the town of Lulu’s Burg with a cast of charters such as Uncle Rabbit, Uncle Rooster, Leon The Mule, Faith The Dog, Winny The Fox, and Mrs. Fennel The Rooster. The small town is beset with the real-world dilemma of what is the price of freedom and security and what happens to a community when laws are broken and individuals are held above the law.
