Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-K—Peep, an adorable baby chick, can barely wait for Egg to hatch. Egg, however, is hesitant. In fact, Egg is so fearful that he has decided not to hatch at all. In an attempt to lure her anxious friend out of his shell, Peep begins describing all the things they can do together. When she tells Egg they can watch the sunrise from the roof of the henhouse, Egg informs her that the roof is too high. When she suggests splashing in puddles, Egg drolly replies, "Too wet." Each entreaty is illustrated with an exuberant Peep wreathed in smiles and a very dour Egg looking put upon. The tide turns, however, when Peep leaves without reading Egg a story. He is so desirous of one that he hatches, and the book concludes with the two of them on the roof of the henhouse happily reading, albeit with Egg sporting a helmet in case of a fall! Charmingly illustrated by Wan with bold strokes and spot-on facial expressions, this picture book is delightful. Gehl has created an appealing duo with the enthusiastic Peep and the lovably neurotic Egg. The constant refrain of "I'm not hatching" will be a winner at storytime. VERDICT A clever way to demonstrate overcoming one's fears.—Amy Nolan, St. Joseph Public Library, St. Joseph, MI

Review

Peep and Egg I'm Not Hatching:

"Rendered with thick lines, flat colors, and simple cartoonlike shapes, Wan’s illustrations are a joyous complement to Gehl’s text. Children will listen in anticipation of what will make Egg finally hatch; their adult readers will smile in recognition of the predictable toddler stubbornness." ―Kirkus Reviews

"
Gehl’s just-enough text delivers a spot-on channeling of a coaxing parent and oppositional child, while Wan blends expressive emoji-like characters (even unhatched, Egg has a vividly cranky personality) with ingeniously geometric settings. A scene in which Peep and Egg imagine watching a sunrise together is a marvelous array of shapes and lines." ―Publishers Weekly

"Charmingly illustrated by Wan with bold strokes and spot-on facial expressions, this picture book is delightful. Gehl has created an appealing duo with the enthusiastic Peep and the lovably neurotic Egg. The constant refrain of “I’m not hatching” will be a winner at storytime. VERDICT A clever way to demonstrate overcoming one’s fears." ―School Library Journal
