What happens when the citizens of La Paz decide the village is too noisy? They fire the old mayor and get a new one. Don Pepe passes law after law, and before long even teakettles are afraid to whistle, but silence isn’t as golden as the citizens thought. Some even leave town. Seven years later a rooster and his family move in, but he refuses to be silenced. He has things to crow about. Who has the voice that matters – a noisy rooster or a law-making mayor? You’ll have to read to find out.
