Wake Up, It's Easter!
by James Krüss
Age Range: Under_5
Mr Croak the raven spreads the word among the animals that Easter has arrived. Vicky Vole drops her coffee in shock when she sees him peering down into her den. She quickly recovers and takes the message to her friend Rob Rabbit, waking him just in time to send the sleepy bunny hopping away over the fields to notify the other rabbits.
Adapted from a poem by James Kruss, the playful rhyming verse is occasionally a bit stilted, but the smudgy rich colour illustrations by Frauke Weldin of the happy animals announcing that Easter has arrived are charming.
