How Will the Easter Bunny Know? Mike is going to Grandmaís for Easter. How will the Bunny know where to find him? His friend Tony told him the bunny only goes to the houses of people with kids. What to do? Mike has a plan. Will it work?

Authorís Comments: This story came about because my husband Earl lunched with a friend who said... " Last night we had a phone call from our nephew. He said, Uncle John if I come to your house for Easter, how will the Bunny know where to find me? " My husband came home and said, "I think you could write a book about that." And I did. Martha Weston who did the illustrations for Did You See was commissioned to do the bunny book. She caught the flavor immediately.

What Reviewers Said: A well planned story line weaves together several humorous episodes... Westonís full color illustrations capture Mikeís fears, doubts, determination and final joy: Winterís book comforts children and reminds them of the power of belief. Kirkus Reviews

Thereís something beguilingly childlike about this simple story. Sensitive pencil drawings highlighted with watercolor washes, illustrate this likable story of a child-size dilemma. Booklist. 3/15, 99.
