Once upon a time, there lived a rooster who won so much fame that his story became known in all the countries of the world. In every dictionary, almost, one could read his name; poems, books, and even plays were written about him. That is something many conquerors, poets, prizefighters, and other well-known people might well envy.

Indeed, his story was repeated so often and by so many people that Chanticleer himself would not have recognized it. It seemed important that it should be set right for once and for all, and that is what this book will do, beginning with some scenes taken from Chanticleer's own album of photographs.
