Now Stephen Manes fixes that once and for all with his hilarious tale about a Small Bunyan who proves you don't have to be big to be a hero. Raised in a henhouse by the chickens he calls family, Red speaks their language with only a trace of human accent, he can cock-a-doodle-doo as loud as a thirty-foot rooster, and he just happens to have the most powerful nose in the history of human existence.
You bet. Red rescues a scrawny flock of fowl, hornswoggles a crafty pack of foxes, and ventures to the big city with his faithful rooster companion, Big Tom--and that's just the beginning. At long last you get to read all about Red's legendary exploits--and the only grade-A jumbo biography of the biggest little hero who ever lived! Reviews from Goodreads. FictionDB Reviews:.

Ginger expects Fowler to pilot the plane, but Fowler declines, admitting he was only a mascot in the RAF, not a real pilot. Nevertheless, Ginger convinces Fowler to fly it anyway.
Just before they take off, Rocky returns and joins them. Whilst taking off, Mrs. Tweedy chases them down and grabs onto a Christmas light strand snagged in the wheels. Tweedy climbs the strand with a hatchet, intent on decapitating Ginger, while Ginger races to sever the strand.
