Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Illus. in full color. While taking a walk, three frogs discover what they believe to be a chicken egg and eagerly wait for it to hatch. When a scaly, four-legged creature with a long snoutful of teeth emerges a few days later, the frogs are still convinced it's a chicken and are thrilled to have a new friend. Soon the frogs and "chicken" are inseparable, at least until the day "chicken" finds and returns to her mother...an enormous "hen" who looks suspiciously like an alligator! "An eggs/rmtraordinary treat from a master storyteller."--School Library Journal. "Just the thing to lighten up a picture-book hour."--Kirkus.
