Peter Rabbit was feeling very sorry, as he had been a very naughty little bunny yesterday.  He had snuck into Mr. McGregor’s garden, though his mother had clearly told him not to, and he had lost his quite new blue jacket.

Peter Rabbit has been a very bad little bunny.  He felt very sorry and on his return to mother, he decided to think of a plan so she would love him as much as his sisters.  As Peter was walking past the different farmhouses, he noticed that they had a bountiful amount of eggs that surely they would not need or miss if they happened to be taken.  Peter decided to gather some eggs to take to his mother.  Can Peter, the clumsy rabbit avoid making a huge mess and not ruin Easter?

Peter Rabbit has been around for just over 100 years and is adored by children and adults alike.  The tales of this mischievous rabbit were originally written by Noel Moore, and passed down to Beatrix Potter, her far away relative.  This particular book by Grace Maccarone, is the newest Peter Rabbit book.  Grace Maccarone is the author of over thirty children’s picture books.  She has won many awards for her well know book, My Tooth is About to Fall Out.

Peter Rabbit’s Happy Easter is a captivating and exciting little board book.  I can remember Peter Rabbit from when I was a small child and I still enjoy him.  The illustrations were very colourful and fairly simple but went perfect for the type of book.  The front cover was inviting  and it showed a little bit about the book.  Peter Rabbit is still one of my favourite book characters, and I’m sure he will be for years to come.  I would recommend this book for young kids around the age of four and up.

Peter Rabbit’s Happy Easter by Grace Maccarone gets five colorful stars.
