What It Is

The book Here Comes Peter Cottontail, based on the 1971 movie of the same name, is a 24-page Little Golden Book that tells the story of Peter Cottontail, a young bunny chosen to be the Chief Easter Bunny. But a bad bunny named Irontail challenges Peter to a contest to see who can deliver the most eggs and become the rightfully named Chief Easter Bunny. The contest is not very fair, though, because Irontail thwarts all of Peter's good intentions, sending Peter on an egg-delivering adventure through many different holidays aside from Easter. The book features colorful illustrations by Linda Karl.
