(synopsis from Goodreads)

Nancy and her friends celebrate Easter with an egg hunt! Lucky for the kids, it's JoJo's turn to have the class bunny, Nibbles, at the Clancy house for the weekend. But when Nancy accidentally leaves the cage unlocked, Nibbles escapes into the yard! Nancy doesn't want anyone to know, so she quietly searches for the rabbit while the rest of the kids search for the eggs. Of course, this being a sweet little picture book, the bunny is found unharmed (although, the way Frenchy was drawn licking his lips as he was looking at the rabbit at one point, I wasn't sure there was going to be a happy ending!)... but Nancy's missed out on all the Easter eggs. True to the nature of these books, her friends and family find a way to do something really nice for Nancy.

I don't think I enjoyed this one quite as much as the regular picture books, but it's not one of the worst Fancy Nancy titles I've read. There are some nice fancy words, and a sweet story with a nice message. If you're looking for Easter books for kids, you could do a lot worse.
