A beautifully simple picture book that celebrates the wonder of new life – the perfect Easter gift!
There once was a little little bird. It was so little, it was only an egg...
When a little bird is inside an egg, it cannot walk, it cannot sing, and it cannot fly. All it can do is be sat on.
But when the time is just right: 'Pop!' – out it comes. And then a little bird can do almost anything!

Ruth Krauss, a member of the experimental Writer's Laboratory at the Bank Street School in New York City in the 1940s, imaginatively used humour and invented words to create some of the very first books for children that highlighted the child’s inner life. She collaborated with some of the greatest illustrators in children’s literature, including Maurice Sendak, who described her as a ‘giant’ in children’s literature, and her husband, Crockett Johnson.
· Crockett Johnson was the author and illustrator of the popular American comic strip, Barnaby.
