Children Ages 4-6 • 15 mins. • Unabridged • © 2015

Elizabeth Morton narrates the story of a disagreement in the chicken coop with aplomb. She sounds calm and evenly modulated as the hens discuss their laying prowess. There's quite of range of producers--from a one-a-day layer to a steady five-a-week layer to Gloria, who turns out to be a rooster, and to P. Zonka, who never lays an egg at all. Morton voices a boastful Nadine and a perplexed Maud. As Gloria, Morton's oft-repeated "cock-a-doodle-do" brings humor, and as P. Zonka, Morton brings conviction and delight at the beauties of the natural world. Can the hens convince P. Zonka to try laying an egg? And, if so, what might that egg look like? An afterword explains the origins of this story and provides a description of Ukrainian Easter eggs. A.R. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2016]
