Mr Bunny's Chocolate Factory

Publisher: Oxford

Where do your Easter eggs come from? Why, Mr Bunny's chocolate factory, of course! Staffed by June, Vera, Debbie and the other chickens, it's a well-oiled choccy machine - until Mr Bunny, a chocolate capitalist, starts putting profits before poultry.

Even Edgar the Quality Control Unicorn is no match for Mr Bunny's controlling ways, and chaos reigns until the chickens go on strike. Soon, Mr Bunny learns that successful leadership involves recognising workers' rights and listening to their input, which isn't half as fowl (!!) as he thought.

So much more than an Easter picture book, Elys Dolan's sophisticated semi-cartoon style tale of Easter eggs' origins casts a wry look at manufacturing (especially factory farming), the world of work and the need for fairness. Fans of Matty Long's Super Happy Magic Forest will enjoy the humour and speech bubble style, and there are plenty of small details to spot and enjoy many times over.
