The country bunny attains the exalted position of Easter Bunny in spite of her responsibilities as the mother of twenty-one children.

With twenty-one baby bunnies to look after, mother bunny Cottontail abandons her dream of becoming an Easter Bunny.

Originally published in 1939, Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes celebrates the timeless values of equality, hard work, and patient ambition. Featuring Caldecott Award winner Marjorie Flack’s original hand-drawn illustrations and a beautifully redesigned cover, this seventy-fifth anniversary heirloom edition is perfect for sharing with a new generation of young readers.

"It is difficult to believe that this very modern feminist tale was originally written in 1939. A gem of a fantasy in which kindness and cleverness win out over size and brawn."--Learning Magazine —
