The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes (Sandpiper Books)
Synopses & Reviews
The Country Bunny is a lady, and she attains the exalted position of Easter Bunny in spite of her responsibilities as a mother of twenty-one children. That the story ends with success and a reward is, of course, as every child would wish.
Like so many other classic stories for children, this one grew from being told and retold to a child for many years. That is why Mr. Heyward gives credit on the title-page to his eight-year-old daughter, Jennifer.
