Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2—In this 10th book about Gilbert, the young opossum and his sister are excited about their cousin's visit. They soon realize, however, that having Wally around isn't as much fun as they had imagined. He is so competitive that he turns everything into a contest. "Last one in is a rotten egg" is his favorite phrase, which he yells while running to beat the others at whatever activity is taking place, even getting to the lunch table first. The children attend an Easter egg hunt and Wally fills his basket quickly while Gilbert takes the time to help his little sister search for eggs. Lola spots the golden egg, which signifies a prize, but neither she nor Gilbert can reach it high in a tree. Wally takes it from its perch but instead of giving it to Lola, keeps it for himself. In the end, Lola wins her prize, Wally learns to share, and the three become friends. Pastel, cartoon-style watercolor illustrations depict the activities while revealing the small town's populace made up of raccoons, porcupines, rabbits, cats, and dogs. Children will relate to the story, which imparts a gentle lesson on how to be a friend.—Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI

From Booklist

Gilbert the opossum boy is excited because his cousin Wally is arriving in time for the Easter egg hunt. But Wally has changed since Gilbert saw him last. He's bigger and more competitive, and he is always informing people they're going to be a rotten egg. At the park's egg hunt, Wally gathers eggs faster than anyone else and is on target to win one of the prizes. Then Lola spies the golden egg that will win another prize. Wally helps her get it down from the tree--only to put it in his own basket! Unbeknownst to Wally, as he hurries down the hill, he has been dropping his eggs, which Gilbert and Lola have picked up. The transition to the moment when Lola gets the prize forher golden egg is rusty, but Gilbert and Wally's sharing of the other prize is a nice moment. Everything is familiar here, and the art is a little static, but deGroat's many fans will welcome another book about Gilbert. Ilene Cooper

If you have a child at home in preschool or early elementary school, and are looking for a good book, this book is for you! This is a wonderful Easter-time story about a hedgehog named Gilbert, who meets up with his seldom seen cousin, Wally. Though related, Wally and Gilbert are the opposite when it comes to manners. I am a substitute teacher, and I read this to a class of first graders. Even though it was time for recess the kids were "begging" me to turn the page so they could find out what happens next!

Format: Paperback
Cousin Wally has come for a visit and his favorite phrase is "Last one in is a rotten egg!" Gilbert and Lola take him to the Easter Egg hunt after lunch. There is going to be a prize for the most eggs collected and also one for the golden egg. Lola finds the golden egg in a tree but cannot reach it. Gilbert tries to help her but is also too short so they ask Wally for assistance. Imagine their surprise when Wally claims the golden egg for himself?!

Gilbert, though, has wised up to Wally and shouts out "Last one down is a rotten egg!" Wally sets off running thus losing ALL of his eggs from his basket in order to get to the bottom first. What will Gilbert do when he receives the prize for the most eggs even though Wally originally had the most?

This book has a great storyline. Wally is selfish and somewhat rude to begin with. However by the end of the story, Wally has learned his lesson. Please note, that if you do not like the word 'stupid' then it is used one time in this book by Wally when he first hears about the Easter egg hunt.

Love these books so much! Can't get enough of them. Our only grand-daughter loves them! I like them because they help little ones prepare for times when everyone is not quite as nice as family and close friends. She understands better what other children will be like when it comes to sharing, telling the truth and forgiveness.
