A truly unique picture book about a newcomer arriving to an island inhabited by superstitious eggs.

Available. Dispatched 2-3 business days

When something strange washes up on the eggs’ island, they are scared. It looks like them. But different. What if it hatches? What if there are more of them?

Most of the eggs hope the newcomer will float back to where it came from, but one little egg is not afraid.

Can their friendship prove there is nothing to fear?
