Every spring, White Hen and Rabbit prepare and hide eggs for children in Green Grass Meadow. One year they are running late in preparation and hurrying when they encounter a wolf, who soon has them pinned down inside a house. They escape. While crossing a frozen river, they help a rainbow fish lying on the ice get back into the water. The wolf pursues, and the rainbow fish yells Stop! The wolf cannot stop but slides into the freezing water. Rabbit and White Hen save the wolf from the freezing water, prepare him a breakfast, and give him eggs for his children. At a key point, the wolf asks the rainbow fish how he can repay his new friends. The next thing we know the wolf has showed up to help prepare the Easter Egg Hunt. They work fast and soon have everything ready for the hunt. Now the wolf shows up three days before every Easter to help. He has become the Easter Wolf. This is a nicely illustrated book about the converting power of sharing and of helping those in need.
