Tucker Digs Easter

Leslie McGuirk. Candlewick, $7.99 (28p) ISBN 978-0-7636-8536-2
The canine star of Lucky Tucker, Gobble, Gobble, Tucker! and other holiday board books returns in a whimsical Easter story, in which he uses his digging skills to aid the Easter Bunny as he hides his eggs. McGuirk’s naïf gouache images continue to charm (Tucker’s delighted reaction to the Easter Bunny costume he gets to wear is an especially fun moment), and Tucker gets to save the day not once but twice: helping the Easter Bunny in the first place, then helping the local children find the eggs, since the duo “hid them so well that no one could find them!” Ages 2–5. (Feb.)
