Product description


"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

From the Inside Flap

Now in Dragonfly comes the tale of three colorful frogs. One finds a pebble. Another declares it a chicken egg. But what happens when a baby alligator hatches instead?
