This story had a bit of black humor, but we enjoyed it. Mostly. Ok, I
enjoyed the black humor--I don't think my niece and nephew found it to be quite as funny as I did--they came to identify with the egg too much, and weren't happy with his Humpty-Dumpty like fate. The kids, my nephew in particular, really
liked the pictures in this one. They were creative and entertaining, and the story was just fun (in some people's opinion) silliness. Who knew a little egg with big dreams could win the hearts of little children?
