Eggy's Easy Out is the story of a young boy who likes to play baseball. Eggy's been catching things his older brother has been throwing at him since he was a baby, so it's only natural that Eggy is the catcher on his ball team. What he didn't count on catching was a big "egg." Young readers will enjoy the familiar topic told in first-person point of view, the animated illustrations, and the exciting ending.
