Please note that this review may contain spoilers for earlier instalments in this series. You can read my review of these novels by clicking the links below:

Unicorn Power! | The Moon is Up

The Good Egg was written by Mariko Tamaki and first published in 2018. It forms the third part of the Lumberjanes series, which focus on a group of young girls who have fantastical adventures while at summer camp. The series is based around the award-winning comic book of the same name and the previous instalments are titled Unicorn Power! (2017) and The Moon Is Up (2018). I would certainly recommend reading them in sequence if you want to have any idea of what is going on.

Following the good-spirited rivalry of the Galaxy Wars, the coordinators of Miss Qiunzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet’s Camp for Hardcore Lady Types have decided that the girls’ next task should be something that unites them. Enter the flamboyant Annabella Panache, resident drama instructor. Pairing up girls from different cabins, Miss Panache decides that each group will enact an elaborate retelling of a faery story. And she does not do anything by half.

While Ripley generally loves to sing and dance, she finds herself distracted. She has discovered a nest of giant eggs in the forest and has become particularly attached to the smallest of the bunch, which she names Eggie. When the other eggs hatch and leave Eggie alone, Ripley enlists Barney’s help to keep it safe until its parents return for it. Her other friends are so busy planning their play, they hardly notice that she’s gone.

However, things take a bad turn when Eggie is stolen by a cult of greedy egg thieves. Ripley is devastated by the loss and the worry turns her into a shadow of her former safe. It’s up to the other members of the Roanoke and Zodiac cabins to pull together and rescue Eggie and they don’t have long to do it. Eggie’s parents have found the camp, and they are not too happy that their child is missing…
