The Egg

The Egg is a charming picture book about three friends trying to track the origins of the mysterious egg and facing the questions: What is a family? Where do we come from? The story peppered with dry humour by Sanna Sofia Vuori is a refreshing take on the popular urban stories of diversity and people living in flats close to their neighbours. Linda Bondestam’s illustrations depict unexpected animals in her recognisable detailed style.
