PICTURE BOOK - Egg by Kevin Henkes

Illustrated by the author
2017 Greenwillow Books
HC $17.99
32 pgs.
Goodreads rating: 3.97 - 713 ratings
My rating:  4.5
Endpapers: a simple checkerboard of the four pastel colors of the four eggs...looks very Easter-y

My comments: Oh my goodness, what a sweet book!  I didn't know what the surprise would be (I hadn't read any reviews, which are rich with spoilers) and I was really tickled when I got to it.  Simple, charming illustrations using a limited amount of colors AND words ... describing it as a graphic novel for toddlers is perfect.  Perfect and perfectly charming!

Goodreads:  Egg is a graphic novel for preschoolers about four eggs, one big surprise, and an unlikely friendship.
