Poor little gray bunny. He’s the only one that does any work around the barn. From weaving the baskets to baking the cupcakes to caring for the flowers, the little gray bunny does it all. He gets no help from the turtle, who likes to hide all day long. The duck won’t leave the tub, pool, or wherever there is water. And forget about the lamb—all she wants to do is eat hay!

When the little gray bunny finds a big pile of eggs ready for dyeing and hiding, his lazy friends refuse to help. But when it comes time for the Easter egg hunt, the turtle, duck, and lamb can’t wait to join in and get a prize. But the little gray bunny has a trick up his sleeve—and the prize is not what his friends expect.

This retelling of "The Little Red Hen" is a wonderful companion to Barbara Barbieri McGrath’s earlier books, THE LITTLE RED ELF and THE LITTLE GREEN WITCH. Violet Kim’s bright and kid-friendly illustrations add to the humor of this timeless and classic story.
