A follow up to Egg, Alex T Smith has taken the well-loved theme of fox vs chicken again and embraced the absurd!

The dastardly duo from Egg returns in this delightfully silly tale. The utterly charming Foxy Dubois and Alphonso the Alligator put on their dancing shoes to commit the crime of the century! But when they hit the dance floor, things start to go terribly wrong...


Egg
was selected by CBeebies Bedtime Stories and was the Book of the Week at Peters' Bookselling Services.
Alex T. Smith is also the author of the extraordinary fiction series Claude which was shortlisted for the Waterstone's prize 2012 and was part of the Richard and Judy Book Club 2011.
Praise for Egg: 'A delightfully silly tale of a fox that wants to eat an egg. Alex T Smith's quirky illustrations help sell the absurdity. Recommended.' The Bookbag
