The dastardly duo from Egg returns in this delightfully silly tale. The utterly charming Foxy Dubois and Alphonso the Alligator put on their dancing shoes to commit the crime of the century! But when they hit the dance floor, things start to go terribly wrong...

Egg was selected by CBeebies Bedtime Stories and was the Book of the Week at Peters' Bookselling Services.

Praise for Egg: 'A delightfully silly tale of a fox that wants to eat an egg. Alex T Smith's quirky illustrations help sell the absurdity. Recommended.' The Bookbag
