From Our Editors

Easter morning begins with a bang for young Max when he spies a wonderful chocolate treat waiting just for him: a chocolate chicken with a bow on top! But sister Ruby won`t let the little bunny have his treat until they go on the traditional Easter egg hunt. Max doesn`t really care about gathering up the eggs, but even he feels annoyed when Ruby seems to be finding them all! Leave it to Max to get his way in the end, though, using an artful Easter collection of his own - involving ants and acorns! Max`s Chocolate Chicken is a cheerily spring-like Easter treat by creator Rosemary Wells.
