Here is what the critics say about Egg...


“Full-page spreads [depict] surprise, wonder, and newfound companionship. …Another stunner from Henkes, who is able to evoke so much with few words and such seemingly simple illustrations. Gorgeous and thought-provoking.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)


“With characteristic understatement, Henkes explores tenderness, acceptance, friendship, and love in this deceptively simple story. …Henkes’s illustrations provide depth and a meaningful sense of the passage of time. ..The open-ended conclusion invites readers to continue the story themselves.”—Booklist


“Subtly emphasizes the anything-is-possible potential of storytelling.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
