Description

One spring morning, the Easter Bunny skips merrily along to deliver his colorful, hand-painted eggs. But the children tell him that it's Mother's Day, which can only mean one thing: HE SLEPT THROUGH EASTER! Nobody wants eggs on Mother's Day, or on the Fourth of July -- and especially not on Halloween. Children will sympathize with the little bunny's plight and cheer when Santa finds the perfect gift to help!

Originally published in 1957, The Easter Bunny that Overslept now returns with a fresh look, promising to delight new generations of children. What a wonderful tale to share at Easter, Mother's Day, Christmas ... or at any time at all!




About the Author

Priscilla and Otto Friendrich lived on Long Island for most of their lives. They raised five children -- and told them all wonderful stories. The inspiration for this tale came one rainy Easter that should have been postponed until a sunny day. The Easter Bunny that Overslept was the Friedrichs' first picture book for children.
