The Good Egg by Jory John
A virtuous egg spends his time helping people out. “I do all kinds of good things. Like… I’ll carry your groceries. I’ll water your plants. I’ll change your tires. I’ll paint your house. If you need any help whatsoever, I’m your egg.” Whether this help is helpful or actually needed is another matter!
The good egg has 11 siblings who spend more time carrying out pranks than being good. One day The Good Egg starts to crack (literally) from the pressure of perfection. He takes a much needed break where he learns to live a more balanced life.
