Eggs and Ideas, Original and Otherwise

Today I read P.D. Eastman's wonderful FLAP YOUR WINGS  about an alligator adopted by birds.

Although I've seen the illustrations of the kerchiefed mama bird before, this was first time I read the book. There seems to be quite a few books about mistaken alligator/crocodile egg identity.  AN EXTRAORDINARY EGGTHE ODD EGG,  GUJI GUJI, and  FOXY AND THE EGG for example. (Foxy however, is far from maternal.)
