The Odd Egg (SOLD)

NEW Paperback Picture Book : The Odd Egg by Emily Gravett
This is the story of a drake who is feeling left out. All the birds had laid an egg except for him. But when he finds a huge, green-spotted egg, he loves it right away. He sits atop it and is subjected to the taunts of the egg layers: "Not pretty." "It'll never hatch!" "Ha ha!" 
Gravett uses narrow pages that gradually increase in size to reveal all of the other eggs hatching, from the smallest chick to the tallest flamingo. While the moms cuddle their new hatchlings, Duck waits and waits. Leaning against the large egg, he knits up a storm until out pops an enormous alligator, scaring all of the scoffing birds right off the page. The final, priceless illustration shows an adoring alligator murmuring, "Mama." 
There are many aspects of the story that make it worth adding  to your bookshelf. First, it's so simple that toddlers can enjoy it. Second, the layout is unique and well suited to the plot. Third, the illustrations are a joy to behold: funny, personable, and oh-so-eye-catching. Kids will love cracking the pages of this exceptional story
