Flaps reveal the hatchlings from eggs of many colors and sizes when lifted, including a penguin, a turtle, and a snake. Troughton’s naturalistic watercolors offer visual hints about the animals’ identities (in one scene, a parent platypus’s fur and webbed foot can be glimpsed near its small, white egg, before it opens). Evans provides additional clues: “My egg is creamy white. It sticks to this wide green leaf. I will wriggle and crawl when I hatch, but one day I will fly in the sky. Who am I?” On the right-hand page, the words, “Whose egg?” appear, and lifting the two flaps mimics the eggs cracking open (in this case, the egg belongs to a butterfly). A smart design, lush illustrations, and an intriguing guessing game should engage early readers. Ages 3–up. (Apr.)
