Jon Klassen packs such emotion into a raised eyebrow or a small smile that readers can feel the outsized impact of author Amy Timberlake's witty, intelligent dialogue between friends. Egg Marks the Spot focuses on friendship while centering the adventure and antics the zany cast of characters dives into. There's a ton of information about rocks and geology, but it never feels overwhelming because it's simply Badger's hobby, his Important Rock Work. The characters on the pages reflect the ways many friends and families interact: with a mixture of love and animosity and outrage and bemusement and exasperation and support, often simultaneously. The story moves at a fast pace, engaging more advanced readers to race through the story and pulling emerging readers into the plot.
