One day he tosses his sister’s favourite dinner away – an egg. His mother makes him go find her another one. That sets him off on his adventure.
Beautifully illustrated, The Lost Egg has Anky trekking through dangerous territory running from dangerous dinosaurs and making new friends.
Anky and his friends demonstrate the themes of friendship and cooperation on their adventures through the jungle as they help Anky make his way back home. All three dinosaurs learn something from the others and are better for it.
One thing that I did notice however is that the story said that in Anky’s daydream Pooka’s egg was green, but in the illustration the egg was purple. I think the illustration and the text should have matched (pg. 9).
I thought this was a fun adventure story that very young children to older children who can read for themselves will enjoy. I gave this book 5 stars out of 5.
Thank you to the author for providing a copy of the book in exchange for a fair and honest review. A positive opinion was not required. All thoughts are my own.

Anky lives with his parents and his younger sister, Pooka. Like most dinosaurs, and animals for that matter, Anky’s family are focused on finding their next meal. When Anky’s sister loses her dinner it is up to Anky to replace it. This is where his adventure to find the lost egg begins. Anky soon meets two other dinosaurs, Dippy (Diprotodon) and Xixi (Xixianykus).
Introducing some unique Australian dinosaurs, this book is sure to be a winner with middle-grade children. The illustrations are dramatic and keep the plot moving along at a rapid rate. They will, no doubt, engage and enthral young readers.
As a side note, I'd also love to see a Pooka spin-off... maybe special powers run in the family? Something for the talented author, Ashleigh Hanley to think about!
