KIRKUS REVIEW

This is a thoroughly pleasant rhymed spoof of Easter egg customs after the fashion of Mr. Armour's The Year Santa Claus Went Modern. Egbert the Easter egg rolls along from anonymous eggdom to become a happy hardboiled egg with a face drawn on who nevertheless doesn't get found at the Easter egg hunt. Chance and a smiling law of gravity spare Egbert a fate worse than going rotten. The illustrator's amusing pictures support the gaiety of a text which should fall on juvenile ears as a relieving bit of nonsense during the Easter season.
