Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A pair of rabbit-themed reissues are back just in time to serve as basket treats. The 1947 classic The Golden Egg Book by Margaret Wise Brown, illus. by Leonard Weisgard, returns as a Big Little Golden Book. When a curious bunny finds a blue speckled egg, he tries everything from jumping on it to pelting it with rocks and acorns to find out what's inside. But since a watched egg never cracks, the mystery occupant only emerges at last when the bunny falls asleep. The soft, retro illustrations ably depict the animals' feisty youthful impatience and curiosity. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
A little bunny, all on his own, finds a bright blue egg and wonders what is moving inside. Is it a boy, an elephant, a bunny, a mouse? The bunny pushes, jumps on, throws nuts at the egg, and rolls it down a hill, but it doesn't break. He listens closely and can hear something pecking away, but being a tired little bunny after all that activity he falls asleep next to the egg. It finally cracks and out pops a fuzzy yellow duck. All the things that the bunny did to the egg the duck does to the bunny—he pushes him with his foot, jumps on him, throws a rock and rolls him down a hill, and finally the bunny wakes up. The two become fast friends. "And no one was ever alone again." Young children may be pleased to learn that Margaret Wise Brown did indeed create more stories than Goodnight Moon and this one with its charming illustrations will find a receptive audience. 2004 (orig. 1947), Golden Books/Random House, Ages 1 to 3.
