Paper-over-board novelty book with a non-removeable ribbon that shows Oliver the egg on one side and Oliver the chick on the other in penultimate spread. "Oliver was an egg. There was nothing he could do about it. He could roll to one side. He could roll to the other. He could even stand on his head. But he was simply an egg and that was that. Until one day, everything changed because miracles happen."
Born and raised a New Yorker and still, Christopher Franceschelli is a long-time publisher, editor, and creator of children's books. His inspiration for this book was the vivid memory as a seven-year-old watching a magician pulling a red ribbon out of one end of an impossibly little box- and then as the magician pulled on the other end, the red disappeared and a green ribbon appeared instead. Christopher sought to recreate that sense of wonder in Oliver.
