Set against the backdrop of the small village of Annaheim in Saskatchewan, Adaya Solves the Case of the Missing Easter Rabbit: A Saskatchewan Fairy Tale by Susan Hathiramani is an exciting story of Easter adventure. Adaya lived with her mother, brothers, and dog, Leif. She was excited because it was a lovely day and she thought it would be perfect for an Easter egg hunt. Adaya realized it was already eight and wondered why the Easter rabbit had not yet arrived at her place. While she was waiting for the Easter rabbit, Adaya admired the Easter tree her family had decorated with Easter eggs. Adaya knew Easter would be a disaster if the Easter rabbit did not turn up with his basket of colorful eggs. Adaya was starting to get worried and she decided to go in search of the Easter rabbit. Would they be able to find him?

This is a magical story with Easter as its theme and children will find searching for the Easter rabbit along with Adaya, her friend Gem, and dog Leif exciting and adventurous. Children's storybooks are always incomplete without illustrations, and the black and white illustrations add to the whimsy and magic of the story and bring the characters and the story alive. The wizard, the robin, and squirrel add to the excitement as the story progresses. It is a good storybook to read out during Easter time and otherwise too. The story has enchantment, adventure, fun, and magic and that makes it appealing and captivating to children.
