Folklore from China

Poole, Amy Lowry. How the Rooster Got His Crown. Grades K-3.

In this Miao tale, there are six suns in the sky, which threaten the farmers' crops. The emperor calls together his wise men to come up with a solution, but no one can solve the problem completely, until the rooster comes along.
