Written and Illustrated by Mini Grey
Published by Red Fox Children's Books
Once again, a Red Fox-published book has ended up being a bit of a cracker - literally in this case. The story of an impatient egg that wants to fly is quirky and touching at the same time, and the egg's plight is underpinned by great illustrations from Mini Grey.
The egg's tale reaches a rather inevitable conclusion, though for a fairly short book it's engaging and interesting enough to become a bedtime favourite
Charlotte's best bit: The egg did not go to waste
Daddy's favourite bit: The faux Newspaper back cover
