Summary

Summary

Nobunny does an Easter egg hunt quite like Betty Bunny! For fans of Ladybug Girl and Fancy Nancy , check out the loveable handful from the creator of Disney's T.V. series Dog with a Blog. Yes, Betty Bunny loves Easter. She loves it so much that she just knows when she grows up, she will be the Easter Bunny. So it comes as quite a shock when she learns that her brothers and sister have been helping her in the egg hunt every year. Determined to find eggs on her own, this time, Betty Bunny also finds out a thing or two about the satisfaction of accomplishment. Going it alone, Betty Bunny strikes again in the latest in her series, a funny Easter tale of independence.

Publisher's Weekly Review

The rambunctious and oft-stubborn Betty Bunny adores Easter, and she knows that she has the necessary skills to become the Easter Bunny, despite what her siblings think. "Only the Easter Bunny can be the Easter Bunny," says Betty's sister, Kate. "But you could grow up to be a weird bunny who runs around acting like the Easter Bunny," offers older brother Bill, whose deadpan teenage asides are as constant (and welcome) a presence as Betty's unrestrained enthusiasm. Jorisch's lean-bodied rabbits continue to embody a tight-knit modern family, exchanging gentle chides and knowing, sidelong glances. Despite Betty's siblings' skepticism over her future career plans, they happily help Betty find Easter eggs during an egg hunt, which makes her fuming mad: "Stop it!" she shouts. "Easter is my favorite holiday. I'm going to be the Easter Bunny someday. I can find the eggs by myself." Putting her desire for autonomy into practice turns egg-hunting frustrations to a source of pride in this sweetly snarky addition to the series. Ages 3-5.

School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 2-Betty Bunny is back, and, as her family agrees, she is "a handful." After she declares, "'When I grow up, I'm going to be the Easter Bunny,'" she is determined to prove herself during the Easter egg hunt. But when she only manages to find eggs with the help of her siblings, she resolves to locate some on her own. Through hard work and resilience, the young rabbit grows a little more independent and discovers that achievement through autonomy can be rewarding. As in the earlier books, there is a lesson to be learned; here the theme of independence is prominent without ever becoming didactic. Jorisch's artwork-a combination of pencil, ink, watercolor, and gouache-is detailed and vivid, featuring an assortment of fully clad animals and action-packed pages. A definite hit during Easter season.-Laura J. Giunta, Garden City Public Library, NY (c) Copyright 2015. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
