Harry the squirrel has never seen anything as beautiful as the Easter eggs that grandmother is hiding for her grandchildren's annual Easter Egg Hunt. And, apparently, neither has the jackdaw named Jack. It seems that Jack finds the colorful eggs so irresistible that he's gathered them all in his nest. What is he up to? The children will never be able to find the eggs so high in the tree's branches. Now, it's up to Harry to find a way to save the Easter Egg Hunt.

Award-winning author/illustrator Pirkko Vainio's beautifully illustrated springtime tale features the kind of pretty pastel watercolor artwork and charming woodland creatures children are sure to love. Who Hid the Easter Eggs? is just plain fun.

Praise For Who Hid the Easter Eggs?

"This old-fashioned story (right down to the grandmother, who looks more like a great-grandmother) has a simple sweetness to it. The nicely executed candy-colored artwork, especially strong in its depiction of Harry and Jack, extends this feeling."  Booklist on the hardcover edition of Who Hid The Easter Eggs?
