Cockerels are usually bossy and self-important, but not Henry. Henry is a cowardly cockerel who won't even say 'poo!' to a piglet, and his crowing is awful. Luckily for Henry, little Buffy Bantam, his only friend in the whole wide world, has come up with a brilliant plan and with just a damp red sock and a red woolly jumper, the pair set out to convince the other hens that Henry is, in fact, a brave and fearless hero. But brilliant plans don't always go just the way they're supposed to . . .
Will Henry manage to conquer his fears and save the day?
