One of the most hopeful, honest and wildly imaginative novels you will ever read, for fans of Joanna Cannon, Patrick Ness and Matt Haig.

‘Truly one of the most beautiful stories you’ll ever read’ JOANNA CANNON

‘I laughed, I cried, I sat quietly and thought about what I’d read… a future classic’ CLARE MACKINTOSH

This is the story of Isaac and the Egg, the most talked-about book of the year.

Isaac stands alone on a bridge and screams.

Something screams back. And that, like everything which follows, is unforgettable.

This is a book about a lot of things – grief, hope, friendship, love. It’s also about what you’d do if you stumbled into the woods at dawn, found something extraordinary there, and decided to take it home. 

It’s a tale that might seem familiar. But how it speaks to you will depend on how you’ve lived until now.

Sometimes, to get out of the woods, you have to go into them. Isaac and the Egg is one of the most hopeful, honest and wildly imaginative novels you will ever read.

Duffy’s Thoughts on Isaac and the Egg

Whoah. This book really is a little gem and I cannot believe this is a debut novel. If you loved The Stranger In The Lifeboat and The Midnight Library, you will adore Isaac and the Egg.

Isaac has hit rock bottom, but we aren’t sure why. He screams into the woods one dark rainy night, but something screams right back.

We know a tragedy happened, but there is something else lurking beneath the storyline and the thread is delicately pulled. As you turn the pages you reveal the real story of Isaac and the one who returned the scream in the woods that night, which will leave you with one hell of a book hangover.

I haven’t loved two characters more since Lily & The Octopus. Isaac and the Egg is a class read full of hope, sadness and a wonderfully gentle sense of humour too.
