Extraordinary hen P. Zonka spends her time taking in the beauty around her: the shiny green of the grass, the buttery yellows of the dandelions, the deep blue of the sky. The other hens can't understand why she never lays eggs like they do. Finally, P. Zonka gives in and lays an egg. To everyone's delight, she produces a wondrous egg that contains all the colors and designs that she has stored in her creative imagination.

Albert is always on the lookout for things to fix. If a hinge is rusty, he oils it. If a roof is leaky, he patches it. All his neighbors count on Albert to help them. He is never too busy or too tired to help. But one day Albert is too sick to get out of bed. He's dizzy and his bones ache. When his neighbors find out, they all lend a hand to help Albert. Thanks to his friends, he is quickly on the mend.
