KIRKUS REVIEW

Sorry, but I don't think this measures up to Miss Harper's usual collections, it seems , somewhat sentimental; perhaps Easter stories are that way? Also, the balance seems wrong, so many of the stories have to do with eggs, so few have any religious significance -- and the one chapter which explains the reason for the association with Easter of eggs and rabbits coming at the end makes no contribution to the purpose of the choice. A few old standbyes, The Selfish Giant by Wilde and a number of fairy tales raise the general level.
