Editorial Reviews

Lauren Adams
When Dora the duck plans a best egg competition, the other farm animals find the odds stacked against them. Happily, her sportsmanlike friends are as pleased as she when Eggday arrives and Dora announces she's changed the occason to Duckling Day. the celebratory tone pervades the good-natured foolishness throughout, effectively anticipating the happy endings. Vibrant paintings depict an exuberant cast of animals.
The Horn Book Guide
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In a story both clever and wise, Dora the duck decrees that the following day will be "eggday," complete with a competition for best egg. She tells Humphrey the horse to bring a "horse egg," Pogson the pig a "pig egg," and so on. Humphrey, Pogson and their pal Gideon the goat have no idea how to lay an egg, but they give it a spirited try, letting out a cacophony of oinking, neighing and bleating. Dunbar's (This Is the Star) text, suspended in black type at an angle, seems simple and purely funny, but it implicitly reminds readers of familiar, worthwhile lessons about competition and creativity. Hetty the hen, matter-of-factly pointing out that the male animals from non-egg-laying species aren't equipped for Dora's task, suggests an imaginative alternative. Cabrera's (Cat's Colors) eye-catching artwork covers every inch of the double-page spreads with thick brushstrokes in vibrant colors that seem infused with the spring sunshine; the curving horizon in her backgrounds is just one sign of the inspired, childlike style of her compositions. Ages 3-6. (Mar.)
Children's Literature - Judy Silverman
Dora the duck has decided, all on her own, that tomorrow is Egg-day. She informs the other animals that there will be a competition to see who has the best egg. No matter that almost none of the other animals lays eggs at all. And, as Hetty the hen points out, the goat isn't even a nanny goat! And in fact all the other mammals are male, too. But Hetty has a good idea. She gives eggs to the horse, the goat, and the pig, and they all decorate their eggs and make them look as if they came from the "adult" animals. But of course Dora's egg is very special. A funny look at bossiness. Hetty is the Mama who makes everything all better. The pictures are adorable.
School Library Journal
PreS-K-In this silly barnyard story, Dora the duck announces a "best egg competition." A pig, horse, and goat are invited and each one tries to lay an egg to enter in the contest. Seeing their confusion about their eggless state, a hen explains that they don't lay eggs and gives them some of hers to decorate. By the time they get back to the duck, though, she has changed the name of the contest from Eggday to Duckling Day, because her egg has hatched. The art is done in a technique that looks much like finger painting with bold black outlines. The expressive animals are placed on full-bleed, double-page spreads that are covered with color. While the illustrations lend interest and touches of humor, this cumulative tale doesn't have the unvarnished straightforwardness that makes stories such as "Henny Penny" so appealing.-Carolyn Jenks, First Parish Unitarian Church, Portland, ME Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Dunbar (Tell Me Something Happy Before I Go to Sleep, 1998, etc.) joins Helme Heine (The Most Wonderful Egg in the World, 1983) and Mary Jane Auch (The Easter Egg Farm, 1992) in serving up with gusto a cast of unusual egg producers.
