Children will love hearing about the rural adventures of Floss in this stunning picture book.
Sam and Alice are the best of friends. One day, while playing on the farm they find an egg and decide to take it back to the farmhouse. The egg breaks and the children fall out. Then they find another and this time they take the egg all the way home to Sam's mum, friends once more.
