A #1 New York Times bestseller!
An Amazon Best Books of the Year 2019 selection!
From the bestselling creators of The Bad Seed, a timely story about not having to be Grade A perfect!
Meet the good egg. He’s a verrrrrry good egg indeed.
But trying to be so good is hard when everyone else is plain ol’ rotten.
As the other eggs in the dozen behave badly, the good egg starts to crack from all the pressure of feeling like he has to be perfect.
So, he decides enough is enough! It’s time for him to make a change…
Dynamic duo Jory John and Pete Oswald hatch a funny and charming story that reminds us of the importance of balance, self-care, and accepting those we love (even if they are sometimes a bit rotten).
Perfect for reading aloud and shared story time!

THE BAD SEED
This is a book about a bad seed. A baaaaaaaaaad seed. How bad? Do you really want to know?
· He lies about pointless stuff.
· He cuts in line. Every time!
· And he does plenty of other bad stuff, too. But he also proves that it’s never too late to change your ways.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
On a separate note, this book arrived significantly damaged as it was not shipped from amazon with anything to protect it. Needless to say I already had my reasons to promptly return.

Its nice how good egg addresses everyone individually by name rather than saying a practical "hello everyone"! That's why he's a goooood egg I guess ! :D
