Here Comes the Easter Cat by Deborah Underwood & Claudia Rueda
A cat with flair to spare, an Easter Bunny with a job to do, and a hilarious break from sticky-sweet Easter fare. Why should the Easter Bunny get all the love? That’s what Cat would like to know.

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. RRP $19.99. Ages 3+
