LoveReading View on The First Egg Hunt

A cheeky chick, the Easter Bunny, Easter eggs, plus an emotional roller-coaster of a story involving celebrity, jealousy, trickery, penitence and a chocolatey happy ending – this story has it all! Authors Adam and Charlotte Guillain have come up with a wonderfully original story to explain why the Easter Bunny hides eggs for us to find, and recount it in fluent, lively rhyme: jealous of the attention he’s getting, Easter Bunny’s partner Chick hatches a plan to steal the limelight. It doesn’t go well, but happily creates a whole new tradition. Pippa Curnick’s illustrations are quite delicious, whether of Chick running through the moonlight, or a massive Easter egg-splosion, and this is particularly tasty reading.  ~ Andrea Reece
