An adorable baby chicken is the latest addition to the family in this sweet picture book based on a true story. An irresistible and unique twist on a sibling story and for anyone who loves cute baby animals!
Albert the sheep is the only one unhappy about the new addition to the family. Tina is a tiny, fluffy baby chick — and she gets all the attention. Albert is big and loud, and he can't resist Mom's vegetables ("Get out of the garden, Albert!"). Sprout the dog doesn't have time for Albert anymore. The cats only have eyes for Tina. And though he tries his hardest, Albert's gifts to the family aren't as welcome as Tina's eggs.
Then one day, Tina faces a danger and only Albert can save her. Will Albert be able to put his feelings aside and truly welcome Tina into his flock?
