Duck and Cluck (a duck and a chicken) have an egg. The funny thing is it looks like Cluck with the same blue and white spots. But it looks like Duck’s bill as well (same blue and white color scheme). And both claim it to be theirs.
Long story short, since Duck found it after it was lost by Cluck, it is his. But Cluck still claims they found it first. After a crazy story with crazier antics, Duck shows why it is his, but Cluck tricks him and takes the egg away. More crazy antics happen, and the egg has a surprise for both.
That Egg Is Mine! A Silly Story about Sharing (Duck and Cluck) is obviously a book about sharing. Yet, I never saw them sharing. I only saw the two of them being greedy and saying, “Mine” and as mentioned above, having the egg stolen. I think Liz Goulet DuBois missed the mark for me there.
Yet, the story has some cute illustrations. I enjoyed how Duck tells you what happened when they found the egg. It is a comedy of errors that only works in an easy reader for children. Or in a Looney Tunes cartoon. The details are simple, basic, not overwhelming, but there is no question the action that is being portrayed. The colors pop, also they are polished, and will keep your attention.
The under five can enjoy a quick read-to, while the older reader five to seven can enjoy solo or with help.
