Description
A cat with flair to spare, an Easter Bunny with a job to do, and a hilarious break from sticky-sweet Easter fare for fans of Patrick McDonnell and the "Pigeon" books by Mo Willems.
Why should the Easter Bunny get all the love? That's what Cat would like to know. So he decides to take over: He dons his sparkly suit, jumps on his Harley, and roars off into the night. But it turns out delivering Easter eggs is hard work. And it doesn't leave much time for naps (of which Cat has taken five--no, "seven"). So when a pooped-out Easter Bunny shows up, "and" with a treat for Cat, what will Cat do? His surprise solution will be stylish, smart, and even--yes--kind.
An homage to classic comic strips from the author of "The Quiet Book" and "The Loud Book," this Easter treat has a bit of bite, a sweet center, and a satisfying finish sure to inspire second helpings.

Praise For Here Comes the Easter Cat

Praise for Here Comes the Easter Cat
* "This is a book that will be enjoyed in storytimes as well as one-on-one. The combination of witty text, plentiful white space, and brilliant images make this a truly winning book." --School Library Journal, starred review

* "Cat’s signs and facial expressions are cheekily amusing, sometimes contradicting the narrator (he holds up a poster of hearts while sticking out his tongue in disgust as the narrator states, “Well, of course everyone loves the Easter Bunny”). Add it to an Easter or cat storytime lineup, or tuck it into a cat-lover’s Easter basket." --BCCB starred review 

* "Utterly endearing." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review
