A hilarious story by bestselling picture book pair Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet, all about a non-conforming egg. The shaped format adds to the eggy fun. Perfect for Easter and for any other time of the year too!

Everybody knows that eggs have a pointy top and a big bottom, so when an odd egg turns up with a big head and a pointy bottom, the other eggs don't know what to make of it. Can they make the odd egg conform to Normal Egg Standards?

The other eggs try turning it upside down, and even make it wear a hat on its bottom to show which side is 'up', but it takes the clever upside-down egg to show them that eggs can be any way up and still be eggs.
