Summary

A number one New York Times best seller!

An Amazon Best Books of the Year So Far 2019 Selection!

From the best-selling creator of The Bad Seed, a timely story about not having to be Grade-A perfect!

Meet the good egg. He’s a verrrrrry good egg indeed.

But trying to be so good is hard when everyone else is plain ol’ rotten.

As the other eggs in the dozen behave badly, the good egg starts to crack from all the pressure of feeling like he has to be perfect.

So, he decides enough is enough! It’s time for him to make a change....

Jory John hatches a funny and charming story that reminds us of the importance of balance, self-care, and accepting those who we love (even if they are sometimes a bit rotten).

Perfect for shared story time!

The Good Egg Cracked Us Up

Was a cute story, given 5* by my 7 year old. I took off a star overall because the audiobook doesn't include the illustrations.

Great for the little ones in your life

Fun children's book about a Good Egg. Illustrations are charming. Text is simple. Message is accepting and encouraging - how a good egg might, just might, want to be elfish sometimes. But let's not overdo it, only sometimes. Because it's fun to be a good egg, too.

Great book for the 3-8yo in your life.
