Robyn Boid is a small, dedicated bird who loves to build nests and dreams of becoming an architect. She lives at the university, and listens to the architecture class through the window each day. Eager to learn, Robyn studies the all important architectural shapes, and works hard to practice her building skills. But all the while, she seeks the perfect design style for her very own nest: a nest to house her egg. Suddenly, she has a brilliant idea and finally understands the ideal shape for her own nest is . . . egg-shaped! Now that she has found her very own design solution, she uses all the skills she has learned at university to create a truly marvelous nest of her own.
