The Bad Easter Bunnyby Isabel Atherton, Stephanie Rohr (Illustrator)

Every spring the Easter Bunny frolics through every neighbourhood in every city to hand out candy and toys to children. The problem is he feels a total lack of gratitude from them. He's getting sadder and sadder, and in turn his once bright-pink fur has gone a depressing shade of blue. His fur really does reflect how he is feeling inside. When a group of highly excitable children knock him to the ground, he sees all of the colors of the rainbow and settles on a hopping red color. The Easter Bunny is furious! He’s tired of being taken for granted and has decided to become the Bad Easter Bunny.
He sets about smashing toys, eating all the candy, and making a big mess of the neighborhood. But a simple "thank you" from one little girl on a scooter makes the Bad Easter Bunny regret his actions. A small hug and sharing a piece of candy makes the Easter Bunny turn a happy pink, and he promises to be bad no more. In this fun and quirky children's book, Stéphanie Röhr's magical illustrations show how one good bunny turned very bad--and how important gratitude can be.

The Bad Easter Bunny is unappreciated. He carries all the toys and candy around with him in a comically large backpack, which children greedily climb all over, taking treats in their excitement. None of the children thank the Easter bunny. So he gets mad and turns bad. The story delivers a message of the importance of gratitude. The Bad Easter Bunny later regrets his actions after one little girl thanks him and shares her candy with him. I particularly like the how the Bad Easter Bunny’s fur changes colour to reflect his varying moods. The quirky, bright, and colourful illustrations fit perfectly with the story. I’d highly recommend THE BAD EASTER BUNNY as a sweet and fun read that can be enjoyed time and time again.
