Since the frogs don’t know the difference, they continue to call the baby alligator a chicken. The “chicken” becomes friends with the frogs, and they all enjoy playing and swimming together. Then one day, the “chicken” is returned to his mother and the frogs all laugh when she calls him an alligator. This silly story is sure to delight young readers with its colorful illustrations, kind characters, and sweet story.
