The Cockcrow: Short Stories, Drama and Poems
In stock (can be backordered)
Great care has been taken in putting together this collection of short stories, poems, and a play for Junior High Schools in Ghana.
Each story, poem or play has been selected for a purpose, which is to educate and entertain. Readers will find in them characters, events and situations they can relate to, even as they learn about types of literature and their modes of appeal.
Above all, this collection is aimed at encouraging and sustaining the habit of reading from the Junior High School onward. In each story, poem or play, you will hear the cock crow to inform, warn and entertain in words imagined by the writers.
