"The Great Eggscape" by Susan Glass

"The Great Eggscape" (published February 2011)Written by Susan Glass, Illustrated by Cornelius Van Wright
Benny and Aggie are two "bad eggs" who decide to escape their fate of becoming painted Easter eggs. As soon as they can make a break for it, the two bust out of their carton, scramble away, and run amok in the fridge and pantry. They mash the potatoes, stalk the celery, and toss the salad until Chip, who is one smart chocolate chip cookie, intervenes and beats the two hardboiled, rotten eggs at their own game!

About the author (I couldn't find a website for her): Susan Glass is the author of nineteen science books for Grades 3 through 6.  While waiting for the publication of "The Great Eggscape", she has been busy with family and teaching.  Susan lives in Hollister, California

My thoughts...
Just in time for Easter, this book will have you rolling on the floor laughing! I just loved reading this book and could definitely see this as being an Easter favorite among many children.

The story tells about two bad eggs, partners in crime, who are being very mean to the vegetables in the fridge. But then a hero arupts, Chip the cookie comes to the rescue and puts them behind bars (chocolate bars, that is!). It is such a cute story, but I think preschool or older would be perfect - they would definitely understand all of the funny humor puns and sayings throughout the book.

This book is such an entertaining delight, and I would recommend it to any teacher, or family as a read aloud, and Easter favorite for years to come! You will just love the ending, especially if you have siblings :)

Thank You so much Net Galley and Star Bright Books for allowing me to read this book! I cannot wait to read more books from you in the future!
