To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This isn't a full length book like the two that preceded it. It's a short story without much plot or message. The included stickers don't make up for that. Perhaps most disappointing is that Pete Oswald, the illustrator of the prior books, illustrated only the cover of this one. Only when you turn to the title page do you see the listed illustrator for the rest of the book. I felt like I'd been suckered into a cash grab. This is the only time I've ever been annoyed enough with an Amazon book to go through the effort of returning it. :(
We bought The Cool Bean and it was great so we bought The Great Eggscape next and we really disappointed. It’s a long book with a lot of filler and not a great story line. I do not recommend this. I read it to my 6 and 8 yr old.
This was such a let down after the extraordinary predecessors in the series. The Bad Seed, The Cool Bean and The Good Egg are all modern fables with a deep meaning and lesson to be learned about releasing anger, overcoming envy, and navigating anxiety. The all deal with big emotions and troubles with grace and empathy. The Great Eggscape was an unemotional story without the character development we’ve found in the rest of the series. Such a let down.
