From the Publisher:
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?From Dragonfly comes the tale of three colorful frogs. One finds a strange pebble. Another declares it a chicken egg. But what happens when a baby alligator hatches instead? "Lionni's understated text perfectly complements his signature illustrations. . . . An eggs-tradordinary treat from a master storyteller".--"School Library Journal", starred review. Full color.
Jessica the frog and her friends are certain the egg she's found belongs to a chicken. So when the egg hatches and a baby alligator comes out, the frogs think it must be a baby chicken. When the mother 'chicken', who looks suspiciously like an alligator, calls the baby "my little alligator," the frogs think it's pretty funny. Collage illustrations accompany the text.
Author Bio
Leo Lionni
Although Leo Lionni is a popular author and illustrator of picture books, many people are surprised to find that he did not write his first book until he was a grandfather. Lionni and his family lived in many different places during his childhood including Brussels, Philadelphia, and Genoa. He attended the University of Zurich and married Nora Maffi. In 1939 he, his wife, and their two children moved to Philadelphia where Lionni worked for an advertising agency and was also the head of the graphics design department of the Parsons School of Design. In 1959, at age 50, he returned to Italy. His first picture book, LITTLE BLUE AND LITTLE YELLOW was originally created as a story to amuse his grandchildren during a tedious train ride. SWIMMY, one of Lionni's personal favorites, was a Caldecott Honor Book in 1964.
