The Wonderful Egg

Long, long ago, more than one hundred million years ago, everything was different than today . . . there were very strange beasts and most of them were big. Stupendously, tremendously, enormously BIG. And they all laid eggs. And one wonderful egg sat all alone at the base of a giant fern tree in the green jungle world . . .

First published in 1958, The Wonderful Egg has been beautifully re-mastered from the original edition and printed in splendid spot colors. Dahlov Ipcar's classic picture book explores the glorious world of dinosaurs - 15 weird and wonderful prehistoric creatures soar, swim, and crawl through Ipcar's striking illustrations in bold and beautiful color which will entice and enthrall young readers. After meeting all of these fabulous creatures, we find that the egg contains a surprise very different from what we expected! And therein lies the extraordinary story of the wonderful egg.
