In this book by the award-winning author/illustrator Leo Lionni, a frog named Jessica finds a beautiful pebble that hatches into what everyone believes is a green, scaly "chicken." They remain inseparable friends until a little bird leads the "chicken" back to its mother, who smiles and calls her "my sweet little alligator."
