From the creator of the bestselling Claude and the official World Book Day illustrator 2014, comes a delightfully silly tale of a fox that wants to eat an egg.
Egg rolls up to the house of the wicked Foxy DuBois. Foxy is always very kind to strangers and invites Egg in, but she's got a glint in her eye, and has devilish plans. The clues are there: recipe books, and pictures of fried eggs adorning her walls. Be careful, Egg!
