Winner of the 2009 Best Illustrated Book Awards.
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!
