PreSchool-Grade 2–Peter Cottontail (aka the Easter Bunny) is sick with a cold, and he has asked his pal, the friendly though massive dinosaur from T. Rex Trick-or-Treats (HarperCollins, 2005), to step in for him. Although willing, T. Rex is not a natural for the role, and he doesn't get much support from his friends Diplodocus, Stegosaurus, and Iguanodon. However, they come to his rescue, tracking down eggs from Duck, Goose, and Turkey, and even one from Screech Owl, to replace those that went kersplat during his shell-shattering attempt at hopping. It is not until after all the deliveries are made that they begin to crack open, and dozens of tiny ducks started quacking! And dozens of tiny geese started honking! And dozens of tiny turkeys started gobbling!... And one tiny screech owl started screeching!, making it the best, although noisiest, Easter ever. Although this story is slight, T. Rex displays an admirable generosity of spirit that nearly matches his great size. The wacky cartoonlike illustrations pair perfectly with this silly text, and youngsters will enjoy both the language and the pictures.–Piper L. Nyman, formerly at Fairfield Civic Center Library, CA
