Paco and the Chicken is the second and last exclusive story from Lessons from the Sock Drawer.

Transcript[]

Edmund had a hamster. The hamster was hungry. He wanted an omelet. So he got an egg, but it was a talking egg. "Please don't eat me Mr. Hamster. I can grant you your heart's desire." "What do you know about my heart's desire?" the hamster replied. "You wish to meet your father," said the egg. "Oh egg. You cut me to the quick. Take me to my father and I will not eat you." So the egg and the hamster got into a boat and sailed across the sea. The egg told the hamster his father was the king of a gated community on a great hill. "Father!" the young hamster cried out. "Son. Thank you, egg, for bringing me my son." "Yes! You may go home now and I will not eat you." Just then an egg timer dinged, and from the egg emerged a beautiful chicken who turned into nuggets and sailed back home on a modern refrigerated cargo ship.
