Reviews - What do customers think about Eggbert: The Slightly Cracked Egg (Paperstar)?

Love it  Jun 1, 2008
I love this book. I think every household should have a copy. Great moral to the story.
WONDERFUL BOOK!!!  Dec 1, 2006
I stumbled across this book working at a local library and INSTANTLY fell in love with Eggbert. As stated, the illustrations in this book are FANTASTIC. It's detailed as if it were true to life. Many people have mentioned the message of this book, which is accepting things or people that may be different, and realizing the good in everything. I agree with this, but also think it helps develop children's imaginations. It is DEFINITELY one of the personal library.
My toddler loves this book  Jun 27, 2004
I can't say enough about Eggbert. When my daughter was two, we checked this out from the library and for four weeks we had a new friend, Eggbert. The peppers and tomatoes and milk and other eggs became a part of our home also. Then one day the book had to be returned. For months we drove past the library and each time my daughter would wail for Eggbert. Then one day she stopped. I did find Eggbert available again, brought it home and for the second time we fell in love with Eggbert. Now I am on this site to buy our own copy because we can't bear the separation anxiety once more.
colorful artwork, great story to go with it  Apr 26, 2004
This is an enjoyable book for kids of all ages to enjoy. The art work is hilarious! Celery stands with arms akimbo along with the other angry vegetables who throw Eggbert out of his home in the refrigerator, into the world. It is a message of hope and acceptance of yourself that spans the ages. I bought it because I fanned through the book and loved the art work, but the story that goes with Eggbert's tale of self-acceptance makes this book a classic for children. I want to see more of artist Rex Barron's work and hope he pairs up with the author, Tom Ross, again.
Life changing experience! (ITS REALLY 6 STARS)  Apr 18, 2004
I purchased "Eggbert: The Slightly Cracked Egg" for my younger son who had been read this book in his pre-school class. When I read it to him, I thought it was wonderfull! The message that it is alright not to fit in was presented in a nearly subliminal way. The illustrations are incredible! I loved Eggbert so much that I bought a copy for all of my co-workers. I was fired the next day. Even though my wife divorced me, I have no contact with my son, and I steal purses to survive, it was worth it. Its been 7 years today that i lost my job. I break into bookstores and steal coppies of Eggbert. I use stolen credit cards to purchase thousands of Eggberts. I hand them out in the harsh streets of Boston. I have been beat up dozens of times and arrested twice but I feel it is my mission in life to spread the joy and magic of Eggbert in all througout Boston. I am considering spreading down the entire East Coast.
