I Am NOT the Easter Bunny!

Penguin/Flamingo. Feb. 2024. 40p. Tr $12.99. ISBN 9780593528457.
PreS-Gr 2–If one looks like the Easter Bunny, dresses like the Easter Bunny, and acts like the Easter Bunny, how could they not be the Easter Bunny? McBeth’s holiday book is a fun, dialogue-rich investigation into the life of one wide-eyed, innocent-looking bunny who has an answer for everything and wishes to keep his identity a secret. Text is arranged so that questions and comments the bunny receives are in one font, while the bunny’s answers and comments are in yellow speech bubbles; readers can easily distinguish between the two. The layout makes this a fun book for a parent or caregiver to read with a child, or for a pair of older kids to act out the story. McBeth’s minimalistic, black-lined illustrations, which show plenty of emotion and expression, are a perfect balance to the smart dialogue.
VERDICT Freshen up Easter book collections with this engaging and fun title.
