up with ideas by the end of the week. When Milo Neal said he was going
to do a project on "The Complete Life Cycle of a Link in the Food Chain",
Mrs. Bag was delighted. After all, Milo was the son of a famous scientist
so this project has the potential to be really special. When Milo brings
his project to school, the class goes wild. Milo intends to raise a chicken

her. The story is told from the point of view of several of the children.
