Whose Egg? Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Flaps reveal the hatchlings from eggs of many colors and sizes when lifted, including a penguin, a turtle, and a snake. Troughton's naturalistic watercolors offer visual hints about the animals' identities (in one scene, a parent platypus's fur and webbed foot can be glimpsed near its small, white egg, before it opens). Evans provides additional clues: 'My egg is creamy white. It sticks to this wide green leaf. I will wriggle and crawl when I hatch, but one day I will fly in the sky. Who am I?' On the right-hand page, the words, 'Whose egg?' appear, and lifting the two flaps mimics the eggs cracking open (in this case, the egg belongs to a butterfly). A smart design, lush illustrations, and an intriguing guessing game should engage early readers. Ages 3 — up." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

Does the egg lying in the golden sand belong to a penguin or a turtle, a snake or a butterfly? Use what you already know about animals and their environments along with the illustrative evidence that Guy Troughton provides to sleuth around and predict which animal will hatch from which egg.

Let Whose Egg? aid the imagination in visualizing everything from emerald green eggs to those that house “scaly claws” and “snapping jaws.” Kids will love opening up the flaps and discovering what type of animal belongs to each egg.

About the Author

Lynette Evans has written many books for children. Shes pretty nosy, so she loves finding clues and solving mysteries. She also loves surprises, so she had a lot of fun writing Whose Egg? Evans lives in New Zealand, home of the kiwi bird. For its size, the little kiwi lays one of the largest eggs of any bird on the planet. It is also the only bird that has nostrils at the end of its beak, but thats another story!

Guy Troughton painted his first bird at four years of age and hasnt stopped since. After completing a zoology degree in London, he began to illustrate and paint full-time. Renowned for his exquisite watercolors, Troughton's award-winning work has been published in countless natural history publications and his beautiful wildlife paintings are held in collections around the world. When he is not in his studio painting, he is busy teaching and sharing his love of art. Born in Surrey, England, he now lives in Sydney, Australia, with his wife Ellie and their sons John and Max.
