Extraordinary Egg

The Extraordinary Egg is about a little frog named Jessica. One day she finds an egg that's extraordinary to Marilyn and August because they never saw one before. When the egg hatched they thought the animal that hatched was a chicken, but it really was an alligator.

I recommend this book very highly. My favorite part of the book is when Marilyn called an alligator egg a chicken egg. It reminds me of when I tasted a salmon egg.
