What's The Odd Egg About

Publisher Summary

Each of the birds has an egg…except for Duck. So when Duck finds a beautiful egg of his own he’s delighted – even though the other birds make fun of it. But everyone’s in for a BIG surprise when his egg finally hatches!

The witty text and playful illustrations appear on cleverly designed cut pages that allow the visual jokes to unfold.

Who Wrote The Odd Egg

author & illustrator
Emily Gravett

Emily Gravett was born in Brighton, England, the second daughter of a printmaker and an art teacher. She left school at 16 and travelled the UK for eight years, living in a big green bus with her partner and their daughter. After returning to Brighton to take up an art degree, Emily sprang into the limelight with the ground-breaking Wolves in 2005, which won her the Macmillan Prize for Illustration, followed by a book deal and the first of her Kate Greenaway Medals. Wolves was followed by such brilliant modern classics as Orange Pear Apple Bear, Little Mouse’s Big Book of Fears, Again! and the exquisite Tidy. Each book is unique and different from the last – and each features endearing, beautifully drawn characters that touch the heart and tickle the funny bone. Emily now lives in Brighton with her family. When not working in her studio, she might be found walking the dog, watering the tomatoes or driving the family’s restored 1960s bus.
