Ages 5-8. All of Grandmother Koko's hens lay their eggs in unusual places, but the polka-dotted bird, Kele, keeps her nesting place a secret. Knowing that he will get 10 cents when he fills the egg bowl, grandson Yoanes is determined to find Kele's egg treasure^--even if it means venturing into Grandfather Akwi's spooky shed. This appealing story was inspired by Mollel's East African childhood. Facts about life on a Tanzanian coffee farm emerge naturally through the first-person narrative, as well as through Stock's glowing, luminous watercolors. Primary-grade students attracted by the enticing cover will also like the adventure and the theme of competence. Teachers might use this to bring an intriguing spin to units on the life cycle of chicks. Julie Corsaro
