Egg had big dreams of flying, but doesn’t know how to achieve it. The only way to do it, is by jumping from a very high place and trying to soar through the sky. This doesn’t work well for egg and he smashes into a million pieces.
Cooky and a little bit crazy, this story appeals to the wonders of a child. Children dream big and this story tugs on the strings of reality. The story is wonderful, but the pictures are too busy and aggressive. Although this story is recommended for children between the ages of 3 and 6, I would aim for the higher age group.
