Have a Golden Easter…

Our most favourite Easter book?

Has to be The Golden Egg Book by Margaret Wise Brown, out of the Little Golden Books stable. First published in 1947, the illustrations have been tweaked for a modern audience.
It is charming, witty and just on the right side of sweet – perfect as an Easter gift to bring a smile to every face – and without calories.

A lonely little bunny discovers a mysterious egg and tries all sort of things to get it open, kicking it, hitting it, rolling it around. What can be in it?
When the (SPOILER ALERT!) duckling hatches, he find a bunny asleep beside him and wonders “What is this little fur thing?” so the duckling tries all sorts of things to wake it up…

We have been having fun in the bookshop, showing it to people who are sort of sceptical at first and then just enchanted…
