The Most Wonderful Egg in the World is a delightful children's book. "What you do is more important than what you look like" is the important message told with great humor. Perfect for young children, world is pared down to a kingdom seemingly containing only the king and the chickens, three of whom who seek the king's advice as to which is most beautiful. When asked to lay an egg, each produces one different and more remarkable than the last, to the surprise and delight of the king and all the other chickens. The illustrations complement the text beautifully, and are full of exuberance and sophisticated wit all on their own. The story line is simple and spare, and the illustrations flesh it out with funny details. This is one of my favorite picture books and a pleasure to read aloud with young children. (3-8)
