KIRKUS REVIEW

Gossie, Gertie, BooBoo and Peedie are all busy preparing for Easter, gathering, dying and hiding their eggs. Ollie, on the other hand, is ... hopping, and the little brown gosling sports a pink bonnet with bunny ears. Dunrea’s characteristically minimal, clean composition features wee vignettes on generous white space, depicting his quirky characters engaged in their seasonal pursuits, with the occasional bug, snail or turtle kibitzing. As with all of his books, the overall effect is just this side of too-cute-for-words, landing it in exactly the right range of adorable. Although toddlers and young preschoolers may be mystified at the madness behind Ollie’s method, as he steals his compatriots’ hidden eggs and then hides them again, there’ll be more than pleased by his triumphant ending.
