Booklist Review

Gr. 1-2. Emily and Harry, cat siblings previously featured in books such as Mother's Day Mess 0 (2003), now celebrate Easter with rash enthusiasm in this new Holiday House Reader. In the four short chapters, they draw on eggs that are uncooked and prone to cracking, mix colors so boldly that they turn mud-brown, hide their decorated eggs with disastrous results, and enjoy a happy Easter, after all. Some of the mishaps are a bit hard to swallow (mother puts oil, onions, and peppers in a pan and heats it before noticing the chocolate egg inside), but others are believable and funny. Ruelle's naive drawings with color washes reflect the innocent charm of the episodic story. First and second graders may want to read this aloud to younger brothers and sisters, who will also enjoy the kittens' mishaps. --Carolyn Phelan Copyright 2004 Booklist


Publisher's Weekly Review

Previously appearing in The Crunchy, Munchy Christmas Tree, series stars (and siblings) Harry and Emily return for a nearly calamitous holiday in Easter Egg Disaster: A Harry and Emily Adventure by Karen Gray Ruelle. Despite their best intentions, the pair breaks copious quantities of eggs and discovers-too late-that boots and radiators turn out to be less-than-ideal hiding places for hardboiled or chocolate eggs.

School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 2-In this beginning chapter book, siblings Harry and Emily suffer several mishaps while decorating Easter eggs. A number of raw eggs crack before the kittens decide that they might have better luck if the eggs were hard-boiled. Then, after overzealously mixing together too many colored dyes, they end up with a "mud-brown" mess. They hide their unattractive eggs along with some chocolate ones in their father's shoes, in the oven, and in other inopportune places, all with disastrous results. The young cats worry that their displeased parents will send the Easter Bunny away, but everything works out in the end. Ample white space surrounds the text, and the story, written with simple vocabulary, will entertain emerging readers. The serviceable illustrations have a childlike quality and complement the narrative.-Melinda Piehler, Sawgrass Elementary School, Sunrise, FL (c) Copyright 2010.
