Book Review: The Odd Egg

The Odd Egg
Author: Emily Gravett
Dummy, Paperback, Hardback, US

When Duck finds an egg of his own he's delighted: it's the most beautiful egg in the world! But all the other birds think it's a very odd egg indeed and everyone's in for a big surprise when the egg hatches. Children and adults alike will love the witty outcome and Emily Gravett's playful watercolour and pencil illustrations.

Last year I discovered Emily Gravett and I have fallen in love with her books.

This story is charming, sweet and we enjoy it immensely.  What's not to love about a duck looking after an egg about 10 times its size!  You know how it will end but the journey is fun every time.  Her illustrations are timeless.  We all love this book but it is probably better suited for children 2+.  A real treat.

Happy Reading


  1. This reminds me of a story I loved called the Golden Egg (one of the Golden Books series) about a little bunny who finds an egg but doesn't know what's inside!

    Thanks for linking up with Mrs Readalot's Book Club :-)
