The Easter holiday has become much like Christmas — a grand mix of religious and secular. “Here Comes the Easter Cat” falls into the secular part of the Easter basket, although there are elements that parents could tie into the religious side of things.
Beyond the religious/secular elements, this quirky book features a sense of humor children will understand and parents will appreciate. Author Deborah Underwood has taken on the text with a conversational tone that gives the tale perfect pacing. And artist Claudia Rueda’s illustrations are sweet, simple and fun.
Why should the Easter Bunny get all the love? That’s what Cat would like to know. So he decides to take over: He dons his sparkly suit, jumps on his Harley, and roars off into the night. But it turns out delivering Easter eggs is hard work. And it doesn’t leave much time for naps (of which Cat has taken five–no, seven). So when a pooped-out Easter Bunny shows up, and with a treat for Cat, what will Cat do? His surprise solution will be stylish, smart, and even — yes —kind.*
