A #1 New York Times bestseller!

An Amazon Best Books of the Year So Far 2019 Selection!

From the bestselling creators of The Bad Seed, a timely story about not having to be Grade A perfect!

Meet the good egg. He’s a verrrrrry good egg indeed.

But trying to be so good is hard when everyone else is plain ol’ rotten.

As the other eggs in the dozen behave badly, the good egg starts to crack from all the pressure of feeling like he has to be perfect.

So, he decides enough is enough! It’s time for him to make a change…

Dynamic duo Jory John and Pete Oswald hatch a funny and charming story that reminds us of the importance of balance, self-care, and accepting those who we love (even if they are sometimes a bit rotten).

Perfect for reading aloud and shared story time!

This is the story of a good little egg who lives with eleven other eggs who just aren't quite as well-behaved. Trying to get them to be good is exhausting and when he realizes he is literally cracking under the pressure, he leaves and goes on a journey to find himself again. Ok, I love this book. It's subtly all about self-awareness and mental health and taking care of yourself and learning that it's ok to not be perfect. There are examples of self-care included and I basically think everyone should take a quick moment to read this cute little storybook just for the reminder! Otherwise, it's a really fun and cohesive story with entertaining illustrations and a good message about self-love.
