Description
"Now for something completely different from Mini Grey
"A mother hen tells her chicks about the egg that wanted to fly. The egg was young. It didn t know much. We tried to tell it, but of course it didn t listen. The egg loves looking up at the birds (yes, it has eyes). It climbs 303 steps (yes, it has legs) to the top of a very tall tower and jumps. It feels an enormous egg rush. Whee it cries. I am flying But it is not flying, it is falling. Hold your tears, dear reader there is a sunny ending for this modern-day Humpty Dumpty. Impossible to categorize, "Egg Drop "is Mini Grey at her zaniest.
