Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
In his quest to please his mom, Peter Rabbit gathers excess eggs from his neighbors to give to her. Mother is not pleased. She insists that Peter return the eggs to their rightful owners; but before he can do so, Peter knocks over several jars of paint on his rejected gifts, splashing the eggs with rainbows of colors. When he returns the eggs, all the children of the neighborhood are ecstatic. And that, dear readers, is how Peter Rabbit became the Easter Bunny.
Publishers Weekly
Peter Rabbit's Happy Easter by Grace Maccarone, illus. by David McPhail, imagines Beatrix Potter's hero gathering eggs from all his neighbors' henhouses (except for Mr. McGregor's, of course), accidentally decorating them, then returning them to their proper places at his mother's insistence-presto! Peter becomes the Easter Bunny. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
If you ever wondered about what happened to Peter Rabbit or how the Easter Bunny came to be, Maccarone's story provides the answers. Peter was feeling pretty awful about disobeying his mother and losing his blue jacket. Peter wanted to do something to really impress his mother and to make her love him more than his perfect sisters (not a particularly good message there). As he was walking past the henhouses of his neighbors, Peter decided that there were more than enough eggs and appropriated some for himself. Pretty soon he had amassed a large number of eggs (I think that could be considered stealing) and when he takes them to his room, he accidentally spills paint all over them. Well, Peter is one lucky bunny, because the eggs do not break and they all turn out to be beautifully decorated (a bit of a stretch). His mother is impressed, but tells Peter that he has to return the eggs which he does. The eggs are scattered about and in the morning the kids find lots of brightly painted eggs and it just happens to be Easter Sunday. Voila, Peter Rabbit has now become the Easter Bunny. 2006, Scholastic, Ages 2 to 5.
