Bluey: Easter

Penguin. (Bluey). Jan. 2023. 32p. pap. $5.99. ISBN 9780593658383.
PreS-Gr 1–It’s the night before Easter, and the Heeler family, a pack of lovable Blue Heelers, settle in for bed. Sisters Bluey and Bingo worry that the Easter Bunny will forget them, because he arrived late the year before. Mum and Dad reassure the pups that the Easter Bunny will not forget them again. Easter morning arrives, and Bluey and Bingo eagerly dash to their Easter pouches. They are disappointed to find no chocolate eggs inside. Instead, they discover clues that unleash them on an unexpected scavenger hunt, sniffing out more clues through their house. From the mailbox to the kitchen to the sandbox, young readers will have a ball using their problem-solving skills to aid the two along on the trail. In the same brightly colored, animated style as the Australian preschool TV series Bluey, this lighthearted media tie-in offers bite-sized lessons for young readers without an overly didactic tone. Children will delight in reading about their familiar canine TV friends, while grownups will appreciate the occasional cheeky but appropriate humor woven throughout.
VERDICT Purchase for holiday collections where the Bluey TV series or other media tie-in picture books are popular.
