Review
  • PreS-Gr. 2. In the third book in the Look Again series, Garland has more than 200 items to find in the collage picture puzzles. When Tommy awakens on Easter morning, he finds a note from Aunt Jeanne that tells him to follow the bunny (a la Alice in Wonderland). Each spread contains a rhyming clue set inside a yellow box on the page; the clues serve as the narrative string tying the hide-and-seek game together. The fanciful illustrations contain many Easter objects--from pysanky egg houses to colorful chickens laying patterned eggs. An opening poem suggests that children make a list of all the things they find, count all the gold eggs and chocolate bunnies, etc. The last page provides tallies and translations of the foreign phrases that appear throughout the book. Call this holiday book a cross between the I Spy books and Ann Jonas' The 13th Clue (1992). -- Julie Cummins (BookList, 02-15-2005, p1084)
  • Gr 1-3 –Tommy, who appeared in Mystery Mansion (2001) and Christmas City (2002, both Dutton), is once again being led on a holiday-themed journey by his mysterious Aunt Jeanne. Following a series of rhyming notes from her, he chases a pink-vested rabbit through an Easter wonderland. On this exciting treasure hunt, he encounters a 10-foot-tall chocolate Easter bunny, a noisy jelly-bean machine, a bustling egg factory, and an Easter Parade down Fifth Avenue that is filled with other holiday "things that just don't belong" (e.g., Santa, a leprechaun, a witch). At the end of his quest, Tommy is reunited with his clever aunt in the magnificent egg-shaped palace of the Great Easter Bunny. The vibrant computer-generated collages are reminiscent of the illustrations in the "I Spy" (Scholastic) books. Hidden in the eye-catching artwork are word puzzles (including Easter greetings in a number of foreign languages) and a collection of chicks, eggs, lambs, rabbits, and bonnets waiting to be found. Aunt Jeanne also appears one step ahead of Tommy on each page. Her final note supplies the answers to all of the puzzles. Children will eagerly re-examine the pages of this "Look Again" title and search for the hidden items. –Linda L. Walkins, Mount Saint Joseph Academy, Brighton, MA --Linda L. Walkins (Reviewed February 1, 2005) (School Library Journal, vol 51, issue 2, p88)
  • Garland places realistic but processed-looking patterned eggs, hens, chicks, real and chocolate bunnies, baskets and other Easter-ish iconography in multiple layers for this browser's-delight companion to Mystery Mansion (2001) and Christmas City (2002). Though linked by a slender plotline involving a lad who finds rhymed notes from his Aunt Jeanne that lead him to a brightly colored but industrialized land where factories pour out Easter candy year-round, most spreads are more or less independent—each offering a different visual challenge, from a maze to a "what doesn't belong here?" parade. Providing a tally of his own at the end, the author invites viewers to count the holiday items in each scene and also to winkle out slightly concealed Easter greetings in a variety of languages scattered throughout. Not essential, but an inviting romp, falling on the visual complexity scale somewhere between Joan Steiner's Look-Alikes Junior (1999) and the hyper-busy-ness of Where's Waldo? (Picture book. 5-7) (Kirkus Reviews, December 15, 2004)
