Welcome to the Blog Tour & Giveaway for The Cracking of Monday Egg by B.T. Higgins, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!
ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: The Cracking of Monday Egg
Author: B.T. Higgins
Genre: Middle Grade Fiction
Release Date: November 21, 2019
An Egg World Allegory
The Maker created Monday Egg for a very important reason. Monday just doesn’t understand it yet. Being an egg with arms and legs has its advantages. Monday can run like the wind and climb trees easily, but he is an egg. What happens when he cracks?
The Cracking of Monday Egg is the story of a cranky crow, a sick little girl, a kind squirrel, and Monday’s struggle to deal with his own crackability.
IN MY OPINION
If you’re looking for a book you can share with your middle grade reader(s), The Cracking of Monday Egg is one to consider. And if you’re heading out on a holiday (or any) road trip, this one’s available in audiobook format too.
On the surface, it appears to be a book about an egg who must learn to deal with living life with a fragile shell. Yet, B.T. Higgins manages to delve into deeper meanings throughout the book that made me stop and dig deeper.
Through his journey, Monday Egg discovers friendships, cruelty, pain, and sacrifice. He learns that his creator is also healer and has designed him perfectly. There are so many lessons and truths in Higgin’s little book to delve into.
The resources at the end of the book will promote deeper discussions and maybe have you flipping back and re-reading sections to soak up the allegorical undertones. Entertaining and thought provoking, The Cracking of Monday Egg is meatier than it seems on the surface.
