The Good Egg

(2) K-3 Illustrated by Pete Oswald. In this humorous picture book, the protagonist is "a good egg," but the same cannot be said about the eleven others in his dozen. The pressure of policing everyone's behavior makes him crack (literally), so he strikes out on his own. The simple lessons in John's light-and-breezy text are useful; Oswald's textured watercolor and digital illustrations show an egghead personified, and one for whom readers will cheer.
