Egg by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet

Publication Date: 5 March 2020

The Blurb

When is an egg not an egg?

Everyone knows that eggs have pointy tops and big bottoms – but what happens when an upside down egg turns up? Will this odd egg ever be accepted by the others?

The Review

A fabulously funny, thought-provoking, near wordless picturebook celebrating diversity and acceptance.

Egg is the only word used in the book where the pictures tell the story of a different egg trying to fit in.

Children are encouraged to spot the differences in the bright, engaging illustrations while willing Egg on to stand up and be accepted for what it is – an Egg – just like all the others, but different.

Perfect for exploring and celebrating similarities and differences with younger children.

Huge thanks to Macmillan for sending me a copy.
