Odd Is An Egg

Odd er et egg

A wonderfully beautiful, sad and funny picture book from Lisa Aisato.

Imagine that your head is an egg. It can break any minute. What would PE lessons and ball games be like? How do you think you would enjoy a walk in Pinecone Forest? Or riding your bike in dangerous traffic? Not much? Odd is fully aware of all those things, because his head is an egg.

Age range: 4-8 years

Shortlisted for the Ministry of Culture’s Literature Prize 2010 (Best Children’s and Young Adults Book).
