The Easter Bunny's Assistant: 04/09/17
There's an amusing, albeit, immature, photo going around Tumblr of an unfortunate case of spine label placement. The book in question is the picture book The Easter Bunny's Assistant by Jan Thomas. You can imagine how the title can be truncated.
I have to admit I was curious to see what my local public library did with the labeling. They do tend to get overzealous in their labeling so I thought there was a chance the book would be unfortunately labeled. That was my reason for checking it out. Turns out the librarian who processed the book took special care with the labeling, so there weren't any funny pictures to take.
That leaves the book itself. It's about an over-excitable skunk who wants to help the Easter Bunny deliver eggs. Besides being stinky, the skunk is also careless sometimes with how he helps. But being an assistant is EXCITING!
For any adult has had a child want to help, The Easter Bunny's Assistant is for you. It does show that patience on the part of the adult or mentor can have its own rewards. Skunk does manage to find a way to be helpful.
