Editorial Reviews

Review

“Eggs-quisitely excellent.” -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“ [An] earnest counterpart to John and Oswald’s hilarious The Bad Seed (2017)” -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Both text and art complement each other perfectly.” -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“John embeds a seed of a great idea—finding a balance between personal and social responsibility—within a rip-roaring, touching narrative.” -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Oswald’s digitally composed, bright artwork pops with rib-tickling close-ups and character-building moments.” -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“[A]nother thought-and laughter-provoking morality tale...” -- Booklist (starred review)

“The art, using watercolor textures and digital paint, is filled with comic detail...” -- Booklist (starred review)

“An enormously entertaining lesson about the perils of perfectionism.” -- Booklist (starred review)

“...an organic and locally sourced tale of the importance of self-care.” -- School Library Journal

“The illustrations are an egg-cellent source of amusement...” -- School Library Journal

“Perfect for storytime and one-on-one sharing, hand this to readers seeking comic silliness with a deeper message of self-reflection and kindness.” -- School Library Journal

“The team behind The Bad Seed presents another humorous picture book about staying true to oneself.” -- The Horn Book

“[T]he simple lessons in John’s lightand-breezy text may be useful regarding everyday encounters.” -- The Horn Book

“Oswald’s textured watercolor and digital illustrations show a guileless, bright-eyed, glasses-wearing, oval-shaped character with a brown speckled shell and spindly little limbs—an egghead personified, and one for whom readers will cheer.” -- The Horn Book

From the Back Cover

I’ve always been a very good egg.

I bet you’re wondering, How good can one egg really be?

Well . . .

I’ll water your plants.

I’ll change your tires.

I’ll even paint your house.

If you need any help whatsoever, I’m your egg.

Yep. I’m a verrrrrry good egg indeed.

But what if being too good goes wrong?

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute read
By The Blue Flask on February 28, 2019
Cute book. Its not as interactive as the last book and my kids didn't get into it as much because of that. I feel like it missed the mark a little on the story and lesson.
