Review: Sally's class is incubating eggs for a science project. But her egg looks different from the other eggs - it is huge and green with yellow polka dots. And when it hatches, the "chick" is green, scaly, and has big yellow eyes. Sally isn't sure she likes such a different science project, but when the chick, Argus, gets lost, she realizes that "different" is not bad. Deadpan humor and attractive illustrations make this book a keeper.
