The Overeager Egg

By Milja Praagman (Author)


Format Hardcover Picture Book


Beautifully illustrated picture book by an award-winning author-illustrator.

A little egg falls out of its nest and goes in search of its mommy. Can it find her? He asks lots of other animals for help—but eventually Daddy finds the egg and takes it back to the nest to hatch into a beautiful swan.
“Within the confines of a story we’ve heard before, Praagman has crafted a marvelous fatherhood tale that upsets those old expectations in just the right way. You don’t have to be a daddy to appreciate this stirring single-dad tale (a rarity of its kind).” — Kirkus
