The holidays just got serious. (And silly.)

Santa has it so easy: a workforce of elves to make the presents, a team of reindeer to deliver them, and even a high-tech factory!

The Easter Bunny has to make and wrap all the chocolate eggs and deliver them all by himself.

Now Bunny has had enough.

But will his plan for a Christmas disaster turn into a Christmas delight?

(synopsis from Goodreads)

The Easter Bunny has it rough. He has to do everything himself! After watching Santa coast by with his team of elves and reindeer, Bunny gets a little unhinged and decides to sabotage Santa's big night. But will his plan work? Or will it backfire in an unexpected way?

This is actually more amusing than I thought it might be. The rabbit goes hilariously over the edge after years of being taken for granted. The illustrations are pretty funny, showing Bunny lose it. But the overall message is sweet, making this unique take on a holiday book a nice choice for Christmas reading.

Quotable moment:

Premise: 3/5
Meter: n/a
Writing: 3/5
Illustrations: 3/5
Originality: 4/5

Enjoyment: 4/5

Overall: 3.5 out of 5
