Product Details

Praise

“Brett’s finely detailed watercolor and gouache art is a showstopper, spotlighting lifelike–though nattily clad–rabbits. . . . Borders of twigs, pussy willows, daffodils, and ferns add greatly to the warm, visually sumptuous setting of this gentle spring story.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Intricately colored spreads follow a dizzying variety of rabbits as they prepare for Easter morning. . . Hidden details in the busy scenes invite close study, like a framing device of pussy willows that suddenly blossom into a dozen more floppy-eared bunnies, who hop away.”–The New York Times Book Review

“Brett’s large watercolors include a few visual puns and lots of woodland detail. . . A satisfying, gentle tale whose text and images can be enjoyed multiple times over.”–Booklist

“Brett’s story offers substance to the somewhat slim mythology on the world of the Easter Bunny . . . . the generous helpings of softly furry bunnies will certainly appeal to fans of the small and fuzzy.”–Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Whimsical, fanciful, detailed, gentle and colorful.”–The Dallas Morning News

“Predicted to become as popular as [Jan’s] classic The Mitten.“–The Winston-Salem Journal

“Jan Brett never ceases to amaze. . . . Intricate drawings paired with a sweet and relatable story will hold young readers’ attention time and time again. If you purchase just one book for Easter this year, The Easter Egg should be it.”–Deseret News
