About The Book

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.
