It's an extraordinary day on Pebble Island for three frogs when one of them discovers a beautiful white egg. They've never seen a chicken egg before, but they're sure that's what this must be. So when the egg hatches and out crawls a long green, scaly creature, they naturally call it . . . a chicken! From award winning-artist Leo Lionni, here's a hilarious case of mistaken identity that children are sure to delight in.
About the Author
Praise For An Extraordinary Egg…
"An eggs-traordinary treat from a master storyteller." —School Library Journal (Starred Review)
"Just the thing to lighten up a picture-book hour." —Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)
"Kids will giggle at the frogs' repeated references to the friendly newborn as `the chicken.' They'll be even more tickled when the frogs chuckle at the `mother chicken' who, finally reunited with her offspring, greets her `sweet little alligator' . . . In his 40th book, Lionni is in typically fine form." —Publisher's Weekly
