When the brave knight rescues the beautiful princess, all that remains is a monster sized egg. Best friends Brynn, Alys and Dilan decide to take the egg home to Eggsville, the place where all the kingdoms' eggs are laid, and hatch the giant chicken inside. The only problem is there’s no such thing as a giant chicken.

There are stories however, of fire breathing monsters guarding towers, and legends of great beasts roaming the sky at night. And now they seem to have brought one home, one that will surely require feeding. And what do monsters eat? Chickens of course, and lots of them!

Soon, hatching the egg and dealing with the villagers will be the least of their problems. For a new arrival is imminent, one that is huge and dark and looks intent on destroying more than just a few eggs.


Peter Murray is a British-born author living with his wife and daughter in Greater Manchester, England. After graduating from university, he started work as an engineer and began writing short stories in the evening for his daughter to read. This progressed into the completion of his first children’s book, Eggsville. He aims to provide children with fun and fantastical stories that help them question and discover the world they are living in today. Peter continues to write stories and hopes to make the jump from part-time storyteller, to full-time author very soon.

    Superb imaginative writing

    Thoroughly enjoyed reading this with my kids, 9 and 5 they were so into the story, and towards the middle-end of the book they were begging for more chapters .. we can’t wait for the next book!!!
    Lots of surprises to keep the kids interested, very short chapters, with lots going on, meaning it’s perfect bedtime reading, as you can read a few a night. My kids were really into all the characters and talk about the story constantly.
