Welcome to Eggland.

The wonderful world of Eggbert and his friends.

In Eggland, everyone and everything is egg shaped including Eggbert, the star of this new series of books for children. With rhyming text and bright, colourful pictures, the stories follow Eggbert’s adventures as he travels around in his bright red Egg Car.

This series has taken Oxford author, Paul Gustafson, five years to develop. Written in consultation with parents, teachers and the children themselves, it aims to widen children’s vocabulary and hone their reading ability whilst providing great enjoyment, entertainment and education.

Paul Gustafson taught in Oxford for over 30 years and has a wealth of educational experience. He has also written and co-written several books in the past on a range of subjects including sport and natural history. As well as writing, Paul has also appeared in many television and radio programmes for the BBC, ITV and Sky.

Illustrations for the books have been beautifully carried out by well known illustrator and artist Ray Mutimer, who also illustrated Postman Pat, Noddy, Rupert and Friends Magazine, Charlie Chalk and Star Hill Ponies Magazine for the B.B.C. The books will capture the imagination of every young reader, either accompanied or unaccompanied.
