The story opens with a little frog finding an egg and declaring, “Aha…that’s mine!” That is until other animals in the jungle appear, each one larger than last, and make that very same claim.
An argument and struggle over the egg quickly ensues until suddenly, with slap stick humor, the egg slips, is launched into the air and lands smack in the back of the head of a very large elephant. The animals are at first nervous about what is to come next. They quickly begin hemming and hawing when the cross elephant, now with a rather large bump on his head, demands to know, “Whose is this?”
Good question. Which animal is brave enough to answer the elephant and claim ownership of the egg? Will they each once more try to claim the egg or will they turn on one another? And just what is hiding in that egg?
