Seeking a Bunny

Angela DiTerlizzi, illus. by Allie Smith. Little Simon, $7.99 (30p) ISBN 978-1-4814-7672-0

DiTerlizzi and Smith follow Seeking a Witch and Seeking a Santa with a third upbeat ode to the qualities that define a classic holiday figure. As readers proceed through the board book, a variety of animals stand in for the Easter Bunny: two green frogs (one wearing a pair of rabbit ears) are “seen hopping down the bunny trail,” and like the egg-hiding bunny, a donkey and pig “love to eat carrots./ And jelly beans, too.” Once again, DiTerlizzi’s punchy rhymes and Smith’s equally vivid cartooning combine to create an enticing holiday treat. Ages 1–4. (Jan.)
