Another gorgeous book about the natural world from the fabulous duo of Dianna Aston and Sylvia Long.
The front end papers of this book have beautiful illustrations of all different types of eggs. The back endpapers show the creatures that hatch out of the eggs. In between we learn all about the different characteristics of eggs. Their size, shape and texture. How they are colourful shapely and clever. Where they are kept until their owners hatch– on feet, in nests or balanced precariously on rocky ledges. We even get to peep inside the egg and see just what os going on.
