The Odd Egg

(4 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Macmillan

All the birds have laid an egg and are eagerly anticipating the arrival of their chicks, but poor Duck can’t understand why he hasn’t produced an egg too.

Then Duck finds a big, spotted egg – the most beautiful egg he has ever seen – and claims it for his own.

One by one, eggs hatch for Hen, Owl, Parrot and Flamingo, but despite waiting patiently, Duck’s egg refuses to crack. Until one day the big, spotted egg begins to creak and a most unexpected, decidedly non-feathered, creature emerges from the shell…

A beautifully illustrated return from Kate Greenaway Medal winner, Emily Gravett. Her use of Very Hungry Caterpillar style split- pages, adds an interactive element that small children will love.
