Two Speckled Eggs

By Jennifer K. Mann
Illustrated by Jennifer K. Mann

A birthday party sets the scene in this sweet and relatable story for anyone who’s ever been the odd girl out.

It’s Ginger’s birthday, and she has to invite all the girls in her class to her party, including Lyla Browning. Even though she doesn’t want to! Lyla isn’t like the other girls: she smells like old leaves, doesn’t talk much, and once brought a tarantula to school for show-and-tell. On the day of the party, Lyla is much earlier than everyone else. But even after the others arrive, Ginger’s party doesn’t go quite the way she’d hoped: some of the girls change the rules to the games, and no one likes her silver-and-gold birthday cake – except Lyla. By the time Lyla gives Ginger her present – a tiny homemade nest with two delicious caramel-cream eggs – Ginger begins to wonder: is being different really such a bad thing?

  • The first picture book written and illustrated by new talent Jennifer K. Mann.
  • The idea of being left out or different is a universal one, especially for girls at this age.
  • Charming illustrations and a sweet story will make this a favourite for birthdays, Easter, or any day!
