Witty, stylish and surprising, The Odd Egg is a jewel of a book. All the birds have laid an egg – except for duck. How smug the chicken, the flamingo, the owl and the parrot are as they tend their precious eggs. But then Duck finds an egg, a very special egg with big green spots on it. Duck thinks it is the most beautiful egg in the world: the other birds do not! But, when all the eggs hatch – and Duck’s comes last of all – it turns out his egg is very special after all…There is no doubt about who gets the last laugh and readers of all ages will love the surprise! ~ Julia Eccleshare
The Odd Egg by Emily Gravett
All the birds have eggs to hatch. All except Duck. When Duck finds an egg of his own to look after he's delighted: it's the most beautiful egg in the whole world! But all the other birds think it's a very odd egg indeed - and everyone's in for a big surprise when it finally hatches. With lots of split pages that allow the visual jokes to unfold, The Odd Egg is another witty and lively book from award-winning creator, Emily Gravett. A beautifully illustrated and cleverly formatted tale with a surprise ending that's bound to ruffle some feathers!
Full of wit and detail... if you're only going to buy one book for your two-year-old, make sure it is Emily Gravett's The Odd Egg. Telegraph
