Back The first chick Next
Frogwart watched eagerly, wanting her trickery to begin.

Jacob found the first egg and shouted, "I found one!" But before he picked it up, he held the sheet of paper in front of his face. Then he touched the egg. It popped open, revealing a baby chick, as Frogwart and Tippity both knew it would.

The chick looked up at the sheet of paper and said, "Cheep-cheep!", which meant, "Mama!"

Other children were finding eggs and holding their sheets of paper up the same way, and lots of little chicks were saying, "Cheep-cheep, cheep-cheep", all at the same time.
