Can you feel homesick and at home at the same time? Ever felt lost for words but full of things to say? Meet Andrea Davidson.

 

In Eggenwise, Andrea explores moving to a different country, learning a new language, growing up and falling in love through poems that notice the remarkable in the everyday: a salted parsley sprig, thundering raindrops on windowpanes, and the buzzzZZZzzz of a pesky pet fly.

 

Through warm and conversational verse, Eggenwise invites you to step into the author’s new home in Belgium, to roll your tongue around new words, savour their sound and share your own story through poetry…

 

Fully illustrated by Amy Louise Evans.
