The Chicken and the Egg by Allan Plenderleith

Far, far away on a tumbledown farm, lives a little brown chicken called Flo. Every chicken lays one egg every day, all except Flo. So begins this charming fable by the author of Christmas bestseller The Smelly Sprout. Flo tries everything to help her lay an egg, but nothing works. One night a storm changes everything, but will Flo's dreams ever come true?
