From the Back Cover

I’ve always been a very good egg.

I bet you’re wondering, How good can one egg really be?

Well . . .

I’ll water your plants.

I’ll change your tires.

I’ll even paint your house.

If you need any help whatsoever, I’m your egg.

Yep. I’m a verrrrrry good egg indeed.

But what if being too good goes wrong?
