KIRKUS REVIEW

A Christmas tree decorated with Easter eggs? It makes sense when the tree belongs to those talented Easter Egg Artists (1976) Orson Abbott and his parents. Orson, the young rabbit who feels like a grown-up because he helps his parents with their egg-decorating work, agrees here to let the neighborhood kids (rabbits too) use his yard for a surprise Christmas party for their parents; and it's amusing to see Orson fussing like a proper grown-up to make sure that the kids wipe their feet and do their part in the preparation. In the end Orson is impressed with the kids' responsibility, his parents are impressed with his maturity, the other parents are delighted with the party, and all their offspring ""squirm happily"" at its success. Seeing everything work out so well for Adams' appealingly booted and stocking-capped little rabbit, her audience will too.
