Ralphie hurried home from school, happily clutching his mud-wrestling trophy. Mom and Dad would be so proud!

Getting a new sibling is never easy-especially when it's an egg!

Unfortunately Ralphie's parents don't seem nearly as interested in his prize as he'd hoped. They are too excited about the new egg they're hatching. But Ralphie isn't at all sure he wants a baby brother or sister, especially one that gets all the attention. He has got to do something about that egg!
When Ralphie's plan goes hilariously wrong, his doting family helps him realize that there's more than enough love to go around. Maybe having a new sibling won't be so bad after all.

Feeling greener than his usual green self with jealousy, Ralphie hatches not an egg but a plan to bring the egg back to the stork, from whence he believes it came.
