A brilliant deviation from the norm.
on 13 November 2006
It's hard to describe `Egg drop' and make it sound good enough to match up to humorous quirky story that it is. Without question, the story-line stands out from the crowd, which is great in a market packed full of sweet farm animal books. Eager to fly and unable to wait to hatch and grow through the chick and chicken stages, an egg climbs a tower and jumps off. And of course it didn't fly and, like Humpty Dumpty, it couldn't be put back together again. This seems an odd children's story, with a lesson about waiting. However, teamed as it is with funky bold pictures and a kind-of happy ending with a smiling fried egg on a plate, it works well and my 4 and 6 year olds think it's terribly funny. And I think it's fantastic!
