"It is difficult to believe that this very modern feminist tale was originally written in 1939. A gem of a fantasy in which kindness and cleverness win out over size and brawn."--Learning Magazine

This has always been my favorite Easter story. The pictures were always so fascinating, and the story of overcoming true obstacles when no one else has faith in you - teaches even the smallest bunny to have faith in herself!
