A quirky chicken and a bespectacled bunny undertake a comic quest for Bunny’s last (critically needed) egg. Young listeners are likely to giggle at the idea of a chicken asking a horse to lay an egg for her. (The same request is also made of a busy pig, a fluffy sheep, a grazing cow and a mole with apparently the same eye doctor as the bunny.) Even adults will be amused by the rib-tickling illustrations, in soft-focus watercolor. The hungry wolf who chases this odd couple has a pot belly, a wild hair-don’t and a goofy walk. And the needy bunny wears an orange outfit with a culotte skirt and enormous pointed shoes that match. At the end of the tale, a coop of colorful chickens gently delivers the chicken an important message on self-esteem. An entertaining and educational tale for the very young, though the text is merely functional. (Picture book. 3-6)
