The EGGerson family lives on a planet called NEGGarus in a galaxy far, far away. On NEGGarus, everything is either round or oval shaped. The people who live thereSupersapien EGGbeings, or EGGbeescome in different sizes and colors, but theyre all shaped like, well, EGGs.
The EGGerson family, like all EGGbee familes, has twelve members because theyre better by the dozen. In addition to Daddy, Mommy, Grandpa, and Grandma, there are GrEGG, JEGGsica, EGGward, EGGelbert, MEGGie, PEGGie, EGGmond, and EGGbeth.
One day, Mommy EGGerson tells her children that their cousins from MEGGxico are coming for a visit. The kids are thrilled to meet the MEGGañas: LEGGticia, EGGuardo, PEGGlicia, DiEGGo, EGGnacio, MEGGuelito, MEGGarita, and EGGlida. But the EGGerson kids are surprised and confused by the MEGGañas appearance: their shells are a beautiful brown color, not white like the EGGersons. As the cousins spend the next few days together, they come to realize thatin spite of the difference in their shell colorthey have lots of things in common.
