Book About:

A book illustrator draws a rooster in a book and another illustrator, draws another rooster in another book. Both of these roosters claim to be the best rooster illustrated ever in the world! In order to prove their claim, they decide to start a big battle with each other. Nevertheless, with the help of an author and a poet, their battle changes to a friendly competition instead to let the children vote about their priority. And this way, the story of a battle between the roosters becomes a friendly competition that ends in an election for choosing the best rooster.
