Starred Review, The Bulletin of the Center of Children's Books, September 2009:
"Kids in general will roar with laughter at this expectation-busting tale."
A quirky story, beautifully illustrated, about the egg that wanted to fly.
The egg has always dreamed of being able to fly, but it doesn't really know much about making the dream a reality. The only method that seems guaranteed to work is to get to a very high place and then… jump. Of course, to you or I, that may not sound like a good thing for an egg to do, but then the egg is young and doesn't know very much. --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.See all Editorial Reviews
This book is like a Rob Zombie movie for 4-year-olds. I started wishing I'd pre-read it, and then burned it (or taken it back to the library) at about pg. 11. Look at this:Published 3 months ago by Jessica

Love this book! It is histarical, cute, and has fun pictures to go with the story. We gave this copy as a gift and they loved it as well.Published 21 months ago by r&cs87
Another delightful Mini Grey story with lots of adventure and "teaching moments," as an ordinary egg seeks to be anything other than ordinary.Published on January 22, 2013 by L. Davenport
