    Mookie and the Magic Egg, Story 2

    Mookie and the Magic Egg, Story 2

    Taking care of his chickens is one of Mookie’s favorite things to do. But one day, he was gathering eggs in the chicken coop for his Grandpa and found something quite curious. It was an egg, but certainly not a chicken egg. Still, Mookie cared for the green and blue speckled egg and wondered exactly what or who was in there. Mookie and his Grandpa couldn’t find an egg that looked anything like it in all those books they searched through from the library. Mookie carefully watched over the egg. And when it hatched, he and his friends could not believe their eyes!
