An egg, you say? Yes, of course. It’s round.

Some of the language in the text was a bit above my son's level, so I had to adapt it a bit, but he still got the story. He still laughed at ...more

"...what is that?" asked Duck.
"It's a big egg, of course," said Goose.
The dialogue between Duck and Goose is authentic and hilarious that you can't help but fall in love with these characters. These apparent strangers eventually come to terms with their shared responsibility of caring for the egg. Throughout the process, their relationship flourishes.
