Thu, 12/13/2018 - 2:24pm by -alex-

Book cover: two white eggs sitting on the beach.A bird and crocodile hatch next to each other on a beach.  Bound together by their mutual need and by their isolation, the two explore their world together. 

Can two very different creatures be brothers?  What does it mean to be family?  Alexis Deacon's delicate, deeply tender story explores these questions with a unique mix of humor and melancholy.
