The Egg by Britta Teckentrup is not your usual picture story book. It tells the story of eggs of all kinds, sizes and shapes. Have you ever thought much about eggs? About how they came to be, or what their shells are made of or what makes them so special to have inspired countless cooks and artists to create. This book will teach you most of what you need to know about eggs, and in this age of not thinking about the things we use or consume every day is a timely reminder that there is a beginning to things.
