Three Hens and a Peacock by Lester L. LaminackThis hilarious book reveals what happens when some foolish farm animals decide to trade roles--and discover just how hard it is to do someone elses job.
The Tuckers farm is a peaceful place. Everyone has a job and no one complains. That is, until a hapless peacock falls off the back of a passing truck and stirs things up. Soon, customers are flocking to the farm to see what all the fuss is about. But the hens dont like the newcomer getting attention while they do all the hard work. The wise old hound sees the problem and helps orchestrate a job swap. What follows is the hilarious tale of three hens who get in way over their feathered heads, and one very distressed peacock who just cant figure out how to lay an egg.
Lester L. Laminack has created a comical look at what happens when we underestimate the value of others work. Henry Coles delightful illustrations heighten the storys humor and will have readers of all ages laughing out loud.

I have to admit that the egg thing would bug me a little bit, but it provides for a nice lesson! Christy The peacock never does manage to lay an egg. It is funny that he tries to do so, though!
