Ollie's Easter Eggs

Olivier Dunrea, Author, Olivier Dunrea, Illustrator . Houghton

Gossie, Gertie, BooBoo, and Peedie—the tiny but assertive ducks from the Gossie & Friends series—gather, dye, and hide eggs for Easter. But Ollie, wearing a pink bunny-eared bonnet, moves the eggs to a hiding spot, leading to some searching and hunting on the part of the others. The simple declarative phrases and gently humorous illustrations are just right for the age group, but the ending is jarringly abrupt. Stickers are included. Ages 3–7. (Feb.)
