Description

Gossie, Gertie, BooBoo, and Peedie are all dyeing Easter eggs. Ollie wants Easter eggs too and he has a plan on how he'll get them! Humor and vibrant ink-and-watercolor illustrations fill Olivier Dunrea's holiday follow-up to Merry Christmas, Ollie. Dunrea again gets the preschooler emotions exactly right, capturing a range of holiday-inspired feelings, from Ollie's wiggly impatience to be included to the pure joy of the older goslings discovering that Ollie has arranged the best Easter egg hunt of all.

Includes sheet of colorful stickers!

Praise For Ollie's Easter Eggs (a Gossie & Friends book)

"The simple declarative phrases and gently humorous illustrations are just right for the age group...Stickers are included."--Publishers Weekly

"Gossie and her friends are back, dyeing Easter eggs...As in the other "Gossie and Friends" books, the illustrations are bright watercolors against a white background. Fans and newcomers alike will be delighted with this latest installment."--School Library Journal

"As with all of his books, the overall effect is just this side of too-cute-for-words, landing it in exactly the right range of adorable. Although toddlers and young preschoolers may be mystified at the madness behind Ollie’s method, as he steals his compatriots’ hidden eggs and then hides them again, there’ll be more than pleased by his triumphant ending."--Kirkus
