Just in time for Easter
I don't often check out holiday books, because so few tend to really wow me, so I was pleasantly surprised when Jan Thomas' newest offering caught my eye. With bright, cartoon illustrations that convey a range of emotions beyond the simple text (think the Pigeon from Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus), Thomas tells the story of the Easter Bunny, who is trying to get his eggs dyed for Easter. Unfortunately, his assistant, Skunk, is making it difficult. Skunk keeps getting so excited that he sprays everywhere! The exasperated Easter Bunny, the apologetic Skunk, and his accompanying green stink kept my boys and I laughing, and I'm sure they will do the same for you.
