Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
First published nearly 40 years ago, Zolotow's ingenuous paean to spring, a time "when everything lovely begins once again," indeed feels reborn with Craig's (Angelina Ballerina) winsome illustrations. Combining full-page spreads with smaller panels and spots, her ink, watercolor and colored-pencil art draws from a sumptuous palette of Easter egg colors that reaches full bloom at tale's end, when spring finally catches up to the lonely bunny in search of companionship. When a sleepy owl tells the solo bunny that "there are always rabbits at Easter," he attempts to hunt the place down. Youngsters will be tickled by this misunderstanding and will enjoy having a leg up on the long-eared fellow. Equally gratifying are Craig's renderings of the antics of a diminutive mouse who trails and apes the wandering bunny. In the spirit of a true quest, both travelers are rewarded for their journey: each ends up with a loving mateand seven offspring. Snuggling with his brood, "The bunny's heart throbbed with happiness at this wonderful earthsmelling sunlit bunny-filled world." Like the endearing protagonist, Zolotow's unabashedly sweet, endearing tale of new life finds its match with Craig's gentle landscapes and cuddly characters. Ages 4-8. (Feb.)
Children's Literature
After waking from a long nap, a lonely bunny goes in search of other rabbits. When he asks a wise old owl where he can find them, the owl tells him that he can always find rabbits at Easter. The bunny thinks he must travel "east" if he wants to find "Easter," and so he traipses through sunny summer fields, an autumn apple orchard and a winter meadow. There are no signs of other bunnies. At last, one morning when he awakens, he smells spring in the air and notices rabbit tracks in the muddy earth. He follows the tracks and discovers an attractive brown bunny. They go through the woods and revisit all the places he had searched. It isn't long before they have a family. The bunny learns that Easter is not a place but a "time when everything lovely begins once again." Helen Craig combines whimsy with nature in her illustrations. She creates her own storyline with the bunny's little mouse sidekick who finds his own special mouse companion. The winter scene has animals hidden among the trees. Her soft watercolors never become "cutesy" but are always expressive in both body language and faces. The text is warm and its phrasing poetic. The text was originally published in 1959 and renewed in 1987 by the author. 1998, Sandpiper/Houghton Mifflin Company, $5.95. Ages 4 to 7. Reviewer: Sharon Salluzzo
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-A freshly illustrated edition of Zolotow's classic story, originally published in 1959. A lonely rabbit, seeking companionship, is told by an old owl, "There are always rabbits at Easter," and a place called "Easter" becomes the object of his quest. After traveling through the forest and through the seasons, the bunny finds a mate and finally understands that Easter is "a time when everything lovely begins once again." Zolotow's stylistic trademarks-tender lyricism, poetic prose, and a compassionate tone-continue to satisfy children. Craig's charming pastel paintings in ink, watercolor, and colored pencil bring the bunny to life. A mouse accompanies him throughout his journey, adding humor and reinforcing the message that no one is ever really alone. The animals have lots of character, as seen in the droop of an ear, a befuddled expression in the eyes, a gesture of the arms, or even the line of a whisker. Sturdy and sheltering trees form backdrops for most of the scenes. Update your collection and introduce a new generation to this sweet, joyful tale.-Jacqueline Elsner, Athens Regional Library, GA
Kirkus Reviews
A rite of spring is glorified again in a newly illustrated edition of an old-fashioned, childlike book that was first published in 1959. A sleepy bunny wakes alone in the woods, wanting the company of other rabbits. He asks help from an owl but is told only that there are always rabbits at Easter. Thinking Easter is a place east of where he is, he sets out to find it, dressed in a vest and looking dapper. His quest takes him through many experiences and locales, such as a daisy field where "in all that whiteness of daisies there was no whiteness of bunnies like himself," and a snowy stretch where "his footprints never crossed other bunny footprints." The rabbit's melancholy is built up expertly in the text, but slightly offset by the presence in the illustrations of a perky little mouse accompanying the rabbit on his search, which eventually leads to a joyous union with a bunny in a pink print dress. Craig tempers comic scenes with dramatic ones: Exaggerated elements, such as the overabundance of apples on a tree and the improbable number of fawns in a "family of deer," contrast with a thunderstorm. The text overcomes any small flaws with its mood, and its appeal to the sensibilities of a tender age. (Picture book. 3-7)
