He's captured the attention of thousands of kids and now Roger the rooster will reach even more.

The Royal New Zealand Foundation of the Blind is adapting the children's book Roger the Rooster of Ambury Park Farm into Braille.

The foundation chose to adapt the book because students at the Blind and Low Vision Education Network of New Zealand campus in Homai are regular visitors to the council-owned farm in Mangere Bridge.

The book will be distributed to blind students at the campus and across New Zealand.

The tale of the swaggering rooster was dreamed up by Mangere Bridge author Robyn Murray Hirst on one of her daily walks at the farm. It was published last year.
