Book Reviews: “Eggs-quisitely excellent.” - Kirkus Reviews (starred review) “ [An] earnest counterpart to John and Oswald’s hilarious The Bad Seed (2017)” - Kirkus Reviews (starred review) “Both text and art complement each other perfectly.” - Kirkus Reviews (starred review) “John embeds a seed of a great idea—finding a balance between personal and social responsibility—within a rip-roaring, touching narrative.” - Kirkus Reviews (starred review) “Oswald’s digitally composed, bright artwork pops with rib-tickling close-ups and character-building moments.” - Kirkus Reviews (starred review) “[A]nother thought-and laughter-provoking morality tale...” - Booklist (starred review) “The art, using watercolor textures and digital paint, is filled with comic detail...” - Booklist (starred review) “An enormously entertaining lesson about the perils of perfectionism.” - Booklist (starred review) From the bestselling creators of The Bad Seed, a timely story about not having to be Grade A perfect! Meet the good egg. He’s a verrrrrry good egg indeed. But trying to be so good is hard when everyone else is plain ol’ rotten. As the other eggs in the dozen behave badly, the good egg starts to crack from all the pressure of feeling like he has to be perfect. So, he decides enough is enough! It’s time for him to make a change… Dynamic duo Jory John and Pete Oswald hatch a funny and charming story that reminds us of the importance of balance, self-care, and accepting those who we love (even if they are sometimes a bit rotten). Perfect for reading aloud and shared story time!
