Reviewed by Christopher Solaas for Readers' Favorite

The Worst Easter Book In the Whole Entire World by Joey Acker is a witty picture book about a rock with an attitude who tries to convince the reader that this book is frankly the worst book ever about Easter. He’s joined by Gary the Easter Chicken who wants to get the Easter Bunny back for stealing all his eggs and hijacking Easter. With a little help from some tongue-twisting alliteration, author insertion, sarcastic quips, and cute but rudimentary graphics, this book doesn’t quite entirely live up to this claim. Will Gary the Easter Chicken convince kids that the Easter Bunny is a big scoundrel, or will he and the rock get totally thrashed by the big bad bunny?

Simple graphics are not an uncommon style for children’s picture books, as they encourage the child to use their imagination more, and this quick-read picture book is filled with them. Circles, triangles, ovals, and arcs are everywhere in this interesting spin on Easter. Face palms and frowns abound in The Worst Easter Book In the Whole Entire World by Joey Acker. Young readers will be entertained by the rowdy rock and the cranky chicken. The Easter Bunny isn’t your usual fluffy friendly goofball, either. He’s an angry, vengeful supplanter with a wounded past that only apology and reconciliation can fix. The twist at the end makes for a satisfying conclusion. The easy wording is appropriate for early readers, and reluctant readers will find this sarcastic and humorous account delightful. Perfect for beginning readers and primary students looking for a new spin on a familiar holiday.
