The Odd Egg

Written by Emily Gravett

The Odd Egg Synopsis

The Odd Egg by Emily Gravett is a beautifully illustrated tale with a surprise ending bound to ruffle some feathers! All the birds have eggs to hatch. All except Duck. Then 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. With split pages, this fun format will keep children in suspense as the story unfolds. And they'll love joining in - creak! crack! as each egg hatches.
