by Sally Lloyd-Jones, Illustrated by David McPhail
Description: When a bunny is born in spring, he sees the world as green and new and full of hope. But as the seasons change, the bunny worries that the earth may be dying. In bestselling author’s Sally Lloyd-Jones’ latest picture book celebrating the Easter season and rebirth, nature speaks to the bunny, assuring him of something more. Award-winning artist David McPhail’s whimsical illustrations reflect the beauty of the world around us as Lloyd-Jones’ inspirational text prompts readers to celebrate the changing seasons and the miracle of nature’s rebirth.
Starting on the front cover, and winding its way across each page to the end, a single line forms different shapes that demonstrate opposites (“clean” or “messy”) in Ljungkvist’s signature modern style. Children can follow the playful and ingenious line, which winds its way across brightly colored and patterned pages, till it ultimately forms “you” and “me,” for a warmly charming ending.
Laura Ljungkvist has developed a fan base as the author and illustrator of numerous children’s titles, including the award-winning series Follow the Line (Viking, 2006-2011), Pepi Sings a New Song (Beach Lane, 2010) and, most recently, as the illustrator of Mem Fox’sYoo-Hoo, Lady Bug (Beach Lane, 2013).
