About this Book
Caldecott winner Leo Lionni's hilarious fable of mistaken identity!

For three frogs, an ordinary day on Pebble Island becomes extraordinary when one of them discovers a beautiful white egg. Although they've never seen a chicken egg, they're sure that's what this is. So, when the egg hatches and out crawls a long, green, scaly, four-legged creatured, they naturally call it...a chicken!

Leo Lionni's colorful animal fable--one of his simplest and funniest--features a hilarious case of mistaken identity that's an utter delight.


"An eggstraordinary treat from a master storyteller."--SLJ

"Just the thing to lighten up a picture-book hour."--Kirkus
