Eggstra! Pete the Cat: Big Easter Adventure by Kimberly and James Dean
UH,OH! THE EASTER BASKET WAS EMPTY.
PLEASE HELP FIND THE EGGS. PAINT THE EGGS. HIDE THE EGGS.
THE EASTER BUNNY
Hey! This isn't cool! A Do-It-Yourself Easter Basket?
But for Pete, it's all good. If being a substitute Bunny is what it takes to get the fun off the ground, he's up for it!
Pete pitches in, putting on the fake ears and faux bunny nose and powder puff tail, and heading out to rustle some eggs, with help of the cheerful chicks in the chicken yard.
But this thing is on a tight deadline, and Pete has to hop off fast to the tool shed for some paints, where he does an egg-cellent job of egg art . As soon as the striped, dotted, and fully decorated eggs are dry, he heads off to hide the eggs for the big Easter Egg Hunt in his neighborhood.
With the work all done, the Easter Bunny puts in a brief personal appearance, just long enough to pin an award ribbon on his stand-in--the one with a bunny tail AND a long black cat tail.
But, it's all good. Happy Easter, Everyone!
Kimberly and James Dean's latest holiday tale, Pete the Cat: Big Easter Adventure (HarperCollins, 2014), breaks no eggs in the usual omelet of the helping-the-Easter-Bunny genre, but a hippety-hoppity Pete with his ever-cool countenance and two tails is pretty funny, and the twelve ever-so-cute Easter cards, pull-out poster, and eggs-traordinary stickers will go a long way to providing the sweet treats for Easter baskets for Pete the Cat fans.
