Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
An Easter-egg hunt turns up eggs of all colors, glinting with foil, in The Golden Egg by A.J. Wood, illus. by Maggie Kneen. The eggs glitter from behind die-cut, fold-out pages. The little duck never gets the golden egg he seeks--a goose gives him a chocolate egg instead.
Midwest Book Review
The Golden Egg may not lend to repeated library use but it's perfect for parents and read-aloud situations: bright flaps invite youngster attention to what's hidden behind them as the story line tells of a duck who searches for a special golden egg. A fun Easter storybook for the very young.
