When Fox tricks Bear into buying a donkey egg, Bear can't wait for it to hatch so he can meet his new friend. But donkeys don't come from eggs! And when the "egg" finally opens, Bear gets a fruity surprise. Luckily, Bear doesn't have to face disappointment alone . . . Hare is there to help!

"A laugh-out-loud crowd-pleaser perfect for storytime and small group sharing." –School Library Journal, STARRED review

"Another winner from this sister team."–Booklist, STARRED review

"Horton Hatches the Egg may immediately leap to mind, but this story has an appeal all its own, with the easygoing expansiveness of a backcountry raconteur."–Publishers Weekly

"Stevens' nicely detailed illustrations with their exaggerated, cartoon humor emphasize the delightful silliness."–Kirkus
