The story in verse tells how the Easter Bunny left his egg-laying job to travel the world. During his voyage he escapes many disasters. He meets a stork that is tending to a brood of human babies waiting to be delivered, he travels to Fairyland where fairy tale figures come alive, Santa Claus hides him in the clouds from the hunters, he winds up in Africa with little Black children and so much more happens until he returns home in a dirigible just in time for the next Easter celebration. Each page has a fantastic full page color lithograph by German illustrator Ernst Kutzer with pictorial endpapers as well. The entire book is most likely translated from German origin. Rare.
