Review: My Easter Egg Hunt

Love hunting for Easter Eggs? What kid doesn't? In this gorgeous book for tots, Rosie Smith takes us on a journey in search of delicious foil-wrapped treasure, discovering a range of gorgeously-rendered animals that will delight children.

Look over. Look under. Look around. Look through, inside and outside. Eggs can be found in pockets, in hollows, in grass, under hats. And they're even better shared.

Whatley's divine illustrations and Eastery, sorbet colours combine with Smith's simple but evocative text to create a beautiful Easter gift. I know it's not chocolate, but it's even better. And anyway, you could always have the book chocolate-dipped.
