A touching story about caring and developing an unusual friendship. When Milo finds an egg and hears it breathing, he determines to look after it. Milo and egg have some wonderful adventures together, learning skills from each other. When Milo wakes one morning and finds the egg broken he is sure he has lost his best friend. But, he is in for a surprise! Milo now has a new – if rather scary! – friend to play with. Lovely scenes of play bring this story to life. An exceptionally talented illustrator, this is rebecca’s first foray into writing and illustrating a children’s book. There are two other titles illustrated by Rebecca that have also just been published. They are Just Because and Cub’s First Winter.
