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!
Duck is delighted to find an egg of his own to look after. It's the most beautiful egg in the whole world! But all the other birds think it's very odd indeed - and everyone's in for a big surprise when it finally hatches.
