As often in this series, the fable is changed from its earliest versions. The farmer wants all his hens to lay two eggs daily. The text has him seeing a golden egg one day, while the illustration shows two! His reaction is to pamper this hen and feed her more so that he can get more eggs. She decides to teach him a lesson by laying ordinary white eggs. The farmer learns his lesson and apologizes to the hens. Like all the books in this series, this one tells you THE END in case you did not notice!
