We loved this book in our house. There were lots of things to laugh at. All the eggs in a carton had some funny faces and the niece and nephew laughed and laughed at all the rhyming names. There is also a picture of the egg escorting an old granny bacon across the street and they laughed at that. Eggs were in the toilet and sliding down stairs.
I kept pointing out all the things happening in the book that both kids do. We laughed. The good eggs lives with 11 other bad eggs and they stress him out We loved this book in our house. The good eggs lives with 11 other bad eggs and they stress him out to the point that his shell cracks and he has to go to the spa and take care of himself. He figures out some things in life and he goes home a different egg; a little looser and a little less uptight. The Niece loved this book and gave this 4 stars. She wanted to read it to her brother on her own, which is a big deal. She wants to do a book review of this on youtube.
I might try and make this work. The nephew loved all the eggs in the toilet and other things. He gave this 5 stars. They want to get this again from the library. View 2 comments. Mar 19, Kendall rated it it was ok Shelves: picture-books. This book teaches kids that you don't always have to be perfect, but doesn't teach them that they don't have to put up with being bullied and taking loads of shit from their "friends". Seemed to me like Egg settled because he was lonely and kids need to know they don't have to settle or give in.
Loved the illustrations.

The eponymous Good Egg, having been virtuous and well-meaning from the first moment of his existence, finds life with the other eleven eggs in his carton rather rough. Eventually going off on his own, when his efforts to make the other eggs be good lead only to stress, and the development of cracks in his shell, he learns to decompress and take car Author Jory John and illustrator Pete Oswald, who previously collaborated on The Bad Seed , join forces again in this entertaining new picture-book. Eventually going off on his own, when his efforts to make the other eggs be good lead only to stress, and the development of cracks in his shell, he learns to decompress and take care of himself.
Eventually he returns to his dozen, willing to relax and live and let live Like its predecessor, The Good Egg pairs a narrative that is both humorous and insightful with cute and appealing artwork. The central message here - that one should look to one's own personal welfare, and not take it upon oneself to police the behavior of one's peers - is a good one, and works quite well with the story structure of an individual leaving the group for a time, in order to clarify matters for himself.

Hi Ilovefood, Thank you for sharing your experience with us and we are sorry to hear that the food was anything less than perfect. When you get a moment, please email me on shelley thegoodegg. Looking forward to hearing from you, Shelley. Thank you for taking the time to post this lovely review - its hard to know what to choose when everything looks so good!
Delicious food, friendly staff. Hi shug, Thank you for your kind words - we are delighted you enjoyed it. We're usually very busy for brunch, that may explain the volume! Great location and very different and interesting brunch menu. Stools not ideal for all but we changed to chairs. Busy and bustling on a Sunday morning - we needed to book! Good atmosphere. Thanks Sally - we are thrilled you enjoyed it! Wait time for outdoor searign was very long, ended up sitting inside, which was a shame. We were served very efficiently, did not feel rushed out.
Hi Eskimolya, We're really pleased you enjoyed the service - the team will be delighted to read this! Great brunch - want to go back to try the rest of the menu! Come back soon! Nothing special at all. A shame really given how great Israeli food is! All rather lightly flavoured, service was ok but again nothing special.

Hi CSB, Thank you for sharing your experience with us and we are sorry to hear that the food and service were anything less than perfect. The food was acceptable even if we asked for a dairy free dish that has never arrived. When I asked where my meal was, I have been answered in a very rude way. I asked then for a vegan dish and I have been told there was milk in the bun I wonder how can some food containing milk be defined "vegan". I was trying to call the waitress for the bill but nobody was looking for us and we had to wait more than 30 minutes.
Hi Emily, Thank you for taking the time to post about your visit. We are so sorry to hear the service was disappointing. We would like the opportunity to discuss your feedback further with you, so please email me at shelley thegoodegg. Hoping to hear from you soon, Shelley. This was ideal for the Palladium theatre, in a very instagrammable courtyard in the centre of Carnaby St area.
Authentic Israeli food with a twist.

We are sorry to hear our offering was anything less than perfect when you visited us. Great brunch, delicious food and nice staff! Thanks Vera - we're so pleased you enjoyed the food and service! Looking forward to seeing you again really soon, Shelley. Lovely food, great service, am a repeat customer and come here at least once a month! Hi Bhushan, Thanks so much for taking the time to post your kind words - we get the best customers!
Parts of the Iraqi pita were delicious the egg and aubergine but as a whole it was lacking the wow factor! And the crispy Haloumi was disappointingly cold and not so fresh. Coffee also not amazing. Nice staff though! Hi Lydia, Thank you for taking the time to feedback. We are sorry to hear the food and coffee was anything less than perfect when you visited us.
I am a big fan of the Stoke Newington branch so I knew I would love the food. In keeping with it's location, this venue is a bit grittier and loud but that is the same with most venues in Kingly Court. Staff were lovely- food was perfect as always- and happy hour a good addition. We both loved our evening- thank you. Hi Mike, This means so much to us - thank you! We are thrilled you enjoyed it as much as Stokey. There is a disclaimer on the menu stating no changes will be made to any dishes as they believe in their menu and that the combinations work which is fine if you enjoy the particular suggestions.
We all have likes and dislikes and as I am the paying customer then surely I should be allowed to ask for the food to be served up to my taste. I only asked for the egg to be hard boiled instead of soft boiled - a matter of a few minutes which would have probably ended with a more favourable review! We are so sorry we did not meet your expectations. Great food, excellent service. Loved the location in the court.
Was there for brunch and the Jerusalem breakfast for two was delicious.
A great Sunday brunch. Will definitely be back the next time I am in London. Hi Adam, Thank you for the kind words! We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed the Jerusalem breakfast - we love it too! Looking forward to seeing you when you're next in London! Delicious food but the service was a bit slow. Otherwise it was a great experience! Hi Anonymous, Thank you for taking the time to feedback.
