Product Description

Does the egg lying in the golden sand belong to a penguin or a turtle, a snake or a butterfly? Use what you already know about animals and their environments along with the illustrative evidence that Guy Troughton provides to sleuth around and predict which animal will hatch from which egg.

Let Whose Egg? aid the imagination in visualizing everything from emerald green eggs to those that house “scaly claws” and “snapping jaws.” Kids will love opening up the flaps and discovering what type of animal belongs to each egg.

Editorial Reviews

New York Times: “Whose Egg?” is somewhat more traditional in concept, but its execution catapults it above the grade of the average lift-the-flap. . . . paintings of both eggs and hatchlings (a succession of bird, butterfly, platypus and other egg-born creatures), contain an element of realism that makes each image distinctive. Moreover, each spread contains a gatefold set of flaps that mimics the cracking of an egg, directly engaging the young reader in the process of discovery.”

Publisher's Weekly: “A smart design, lush illustrations, and an intriguing guessing game should engage early readers.”

About the Author

Lynette Evans, Author: Lynette Evans has written many books for children. She’s pretty nosy, so she loves finding clues and solving mysteries. She also loves surprises, so she had a lot of fun writing Whose Egg? Evans lives in New Zealand, home of the kiwi bird. For its size, the little kiwi lays one of the largest eggs of any bird on the planet. It is also the only bird that has nostrils at the end of its beak, but that’s another story!

Guy Troughton, Illustrator: Guy Troughton painted his first bird at four years of age and hasn’t stopped since. After completing a zoology degree in London, Guy began to illustrate and paint full-time. Renowned for his exquisite watercolors, Guy’s award-winning work has been published in countless natural history publications and his beautiful wildlife paintings are held in collections around the world. When Guy is not in his studio painting, he is busy teaching and sharing his love of art. Born in Surrey, England, Guy now lives in Sydney, Australia, with his wife Ellie and their sons John and Max.
