Synopsis: Fletcher is a large hound dog with brown spots, and his mistress is a little girl named Alexandra. The trouble starts because Alexandra is interested in baby chicks - tiny, fluffy, yellow chichk that say "Peep!" as they come out of their shells.
Fletcher's water dish is empty. He hasn't had his ears scratched in days. "She's forgotten me," he decides, and mournfully he shuffles off to the park at the edge of town. Here Fletcher's good friends, Beaver and Otter, have the idea. Fletcher must hatch! Of course, Beaver is a master builder, and it's no trouble at all to build an egg around Fletcher.The egg is large and pink and speckled with brown, and it poses somewhat of a problem for the school principal, not to mention the science teacher. But young readers will delight in the hilarious climax, along with a little girl named Alexandra.
About the Author: Having raised seven children and entertained seventeen grandchildren, Wende and Harry Devlin have developed an unique knack for storytelling. Starting with the Old Black Witch and continuing through the extended Cranberry series (Cranberry Thanksgiving and others), the Devlin's have worked together to produce a remarkable series of children's tales. Their stories combine enjoyable illustrations with a captivating tale and millions of parents have concluded their child's day with one of the Devlin's thirty separate books.
"How Fletcher Was Hatched" reflects Wende Devlin's deft touch for developing a heartwarming story. A member of the New Jersey Literary Hall of Fame, Wende has crafted the couple's stories for the past thirty-five years. Wende has frequently drawn on the lives and experiences of her own children to fill her tales with details common to the lives of most children and adults (no matter how fantastic the rest of the story may be).
Harry Devlin's illustrations display an expansive talent. Harry originally worked as an editorial cartoonist for Collier's Weekly for more than ten years and developed a reputation for excellence that resulted in his election as president of the National Cartoonists Society and, later, as its honorary chairman. He has designed six different stamps for the U.S. Postal Service and his lifelong interest in architecture has produced three architectural books. Harry is also a member of the New Jersey Literary Hall of Fame, as well as a member of the state's Advertising Hall of Fame.
