Ever wonder about the Easter Bunny's Assistant?
The book kicks off with who else? The Easter Bunny of course and he introduces us to his assistant, skunk. They're going to show us how to make beautiful Easter eggs. However, as they're hard-boiling the eggs, Easter Bunny wonders, "What is that smell?" Skunk apologizes and replies, "It happens when I get excited." Skunk is instructed to control himself, but he finds every step of coloring eggs "Exciting" which causes a continuous problem. How will the Easter Bunny color all of the eggs without that smell? (Not to mention, hide them?)
Young readers will really get a kick out of this one and find it hilarious. The illustrations really add to the story and they'll enjoy the instructions at the end for making beautiful eggs. And hopefully when you color your own, we can only hope you won't have a skunk in the room!
