We were delighted when Pearson Education approached Kristyna Litten to illustrate a short play by Julia Donaldson. The Last Egg is part of The Bug Club: an exciting, new series of plays created for children who are learning to read in Key Stage 1.

There are thirty six titles in the series and each book encourages children to build their fluency, read with expression and enhance their reading comprehension. The plays are perfect for both guided and independent reading and can be read aloud, or acted out by budding thespians.

The Last Egg is out now and available from all good booksellers. Also available are the fantastic interactive eBooks where children can select the roles they want to play and other characters’ lines are read aloud.
