Rife with silly "egg" puns, this fun story celebrates the friendship and adventures of a special carton of eggs. The Good Egg Presents: The Great Eggscape! is a delightful way to get young kids excited about their own Easter egg hunts, or to treat them to a whimsical tale about a dozen mischievous friends. Jory John's text is witty and fun, and Pete Oswald's illustrations are packed with color and clever detail. Each page reveals a vivid grocery setting, with brightly decorated eggs interspersed throughout, and the teasing banter of the eggs as they play hide-and-seek throughout the store is playful and fun. There are light messages about friendship, loyalty, and perseverance, as the reclusive Shel won't give up the hunt until he reunites the dozen. The two full pages of stickers included in the front of the book are a creative bonus for kids decorating their own eggs in anticipation of Easter, or to use any other way they choose.
