It is Easter and the eggs must be decorated. A bunny named Hoppi is finally old enough to join in the festivities. If only he knew what to do. He looks at all the others and still cannot decide how to decorate his egg. He wants to win so badly, so he can help the Easter Bunny. Hoppi takes off to the woods to think about plan. It was there that Hoppi discovered the perfect egg.
In Jan Brett's style another classic has come to be. Beautiful illustrations with her signature framing around the pages, along with a lovely fold-out that completes the story.

an Brett’s lovable bunny hero, Hoppi, and her remarkable Easter Rabbit will enchant readers as they pore over illustrations filled with dazzling eggs made by Flora Bunny, Aunt Sassyfrass and others.
If Hoppi can make the best Easter egg, he will get to help the Easter Rabbit with his deliveries on Easter morning. But it is not so easy. Discouraged, he goes into the woods to think when a blue robin’s egg tumbles out of its nest. Hoppi keeps it safe and warm until the baby bird hatches, and when the Easter Rabbit arrives, he declares the empty blue eggshell the very best one to reward Hoppi for his kindness.
Spring is everywhere in gorgeous illustrations framed with pussy willows, flowering vines and flowers. Side borders feature busy rabbits making their unusual eggs and, in a border above, the Robin’s family drama unfolds.
