KIRKUS REVIEW

Fresh from his Halloween T. Rex Trick-Or-Treats (2005), toothy Tyrannosaurus tapes whiskers to his muzzle and a pompon to his tail, then sallies out to deliver the holiday goods once again. Disaster looms twice: First, T. Rex, subbing for the sick Easter Bunny, flops rather than hops and smashes the whole basket of eggs; then, after spending the night with Diplodocus and other friends coloring up a new crop, he oversleeps. But in the end, he creates a memorable Easter for the neighborhood’s young folk: “ ‘COOL!’ they shouted. ‘That’s one really BIG cottontail hopping down that bumpy trail!’ ” Shark-like grin sandwiched between long, fuzzy ears and a pair of understandably anxious-looking bunny slippers, T. Rex cuts a deliciously silly figure in Davis’s frenzied cartoons. And, though readers may want to stick to jellybeans and chocolate bunnies after seeing all the newly delivered eggs hatch dozens of ducklings and other birds, the tale ends on a wave of boisterous good cheer. A happy, hoppy holiday celebration. (Picture book. 5-8)
