Meg the Egg tackles some pretty big themes: Real courage is not a lack of fear; it is overcoming the fear and acting. And no one is too small to make a difference -- or in this case, you don't even have to be hatched.
Meg was the third egg, after Peg and Keg, and was destined for the rubbish heap as rotten egg because she would not hatch. In the end, she does hatch, and rather spectacularly.
The illustrations are easy to follow and enhance the text of the story.
