Jan Thomas, the author and illustrator of such fun picture books as Is Everyone Ready to Have Fun? and The Doghouse has come up with a corker for Easter: The Easter Bunny's Assistant. I honestly can't remember laughing outloud when reading an Easter picture book before - until this gem. I've always been a fan of Thomas' bold, simple, expressive illustrations, but her humor can't be overlooked either.
In this short story, the Easter Bunny has an assistant - Skunk - and together they are going to show the readers how to color Easter eggs. Simple enough, yes? Well, no... it seems that Skunk gets rather excited with every step of the egg coloring process and can you guess what a skunk does when they're excited? It gets a bit stinky for the Easter Bunny.
If you are not offended by this type of humor, by all means, check this book out!!! You too will Laugh-Out-Loud! And hey, directions for coloring Easter eggs can be found in the back!
