Toddler-PreSEgg refuses to hatchit's just too frightening out there! A chick named Peep offers words of encouragement, describing all the fun they'll have once Egg emerges. Egg shoots down every one of Peep's ideas: riding sheep is "too bumpy," while splashing in puddles is "too wet." Depicting rounded, thick-lined, smiling animals, the cartoonish illustrations are high on the cute factor. Gehl's repetitive text, punctuated by a refrain of "I'm not hatching," will speak to youngsters who are reluctant to come out of their shells, and may even inspire them to try new and potentially scary things, just like Egg, who eventually comes around.
