Author(s): Emily Gravett
Duck is delighted to find an egg of his own to look after: it's the most beautiful egg in the whole world! But all the other birds think it's a very odd egg indeed - and everyone's in for a big surprise when it finally hatches. With split pages that allow the visual jokes to unfold, this is another witty and lively book from an award-winning creator.
