Synopses & Reviews
Gossie, Gertie, BooBoo, and Peedie are all dyeing Easter eggs. Ollie wants Easter eggs too and he has a plan on how he'll get them! Humor and vibrant ink-and-watercolor illustrations fill Olivier Dunrea's holiday follow-up to Merry Christmas, Ollie. Dunrea again gets the preschooler emotions exactly right, capturing a range of holiday-inspired feelings, from Ollie's wiggly impatience to be included to the pure joy of the older goslings discovering that Ollie has arranged the best Easter egg hunt of all.
Includes sheet of colorful stickers!
"Gossie, Gertie, BooBoo, and Peedie the tiny but assertive ducks from the Gossie & Friends series gather, dye, and hide eggs for Easter. But Ollie, wearing a pink bunny-eared bonnet, moves the eggs to a hiding spot, leading to some searching and hunting on the part of the others. The simple declarative phrases and gently humorous illustrations are just right for the age group, but the ending is jarringly abrupt. Stickers are included. Ages 3 7."

It's Easter and all the goslings are dyeing Easter eggs. All except Ollie, that is! He wants Easter eggs and knows exactly how to get them.
“Just this side of too-cute-for-words, landing it in exactly the right range of adorable.” —Kirkus Reviews
Goslings Gossie, Gertie, BooBoo, and Peedie are all hiding Easter eggs. “‘My egg, whispers Ollie.” Ollie has a slightly different plan for the Easter egg hunt . . . but all ends well. Vibrant ink-and-watercolor illustrations on crisp white backgrounds get the emotions of the day just right, especially Ollies wiggly impatience. Tuck this board book inside an Easter basket as an unexpected treat!
