From School Library Journal
Grade 1-3–A last-minute accident keeps Santa from doing his job, so Mrs. Claus calls the only other figure capable of making the round-the-world trip in a night: the Easter Bunny. But the substitute has a hard time. He feeds the fussy reindeer jellybeans instead of candy canes and wants carrot cake instead of milk and cookies. He gets cold, and doesn't understand Santa's instructions on where to put the presents. The reindeer finally understand he's trying to help, not to replace, Santa, and with their assistance, the job is completed. Some children will enjoy the idea of the Easter Bunny helping at the wrong holiday, as well as the visual jokes in the bright watercolor illustrations, but this is an additional purchase because of the predictable story and lackluster writing.–Lisa Falk, Los Angeles Public Library

The story begins with Santa having a work place health and safety accident involving a toy train that some elf hadn't put where it was supposed to go. Out of action there is no way he will be able to fulfill his duties of delivering presents around the globe. No mere human or elf for that matter can pull of this magical task except there is another who makes the same journey around Easter. However there's a few differences in the normal operating procedure of the Easter Bunny, firstly Easter Bunny does not deliver in Winter (this book is set in the Northern Hemisphere) so has a few problems with the snow and cold temperature. Easter Bunny places his chocolate eggs wherever he wants to but Santa has given him instructions as to specific places to put presents for each child. These aren't always clear and Easter Bunny makes some mistakes like putting presents under the tree in the garden outside instead of Christmas tree. Also Santa's diet of milk and cookies isn't appropriate for a rabbit but of course the children didn't know Easter Bunny would be filling in. These and many more hurdles are in the way of the Easter Bunny pulling off Santa's mammoth task and initially the reindeer just criticise and mumble to themselves before it dawns on them what the importance of this night is, and that Easter Bunny is doing Santa a favour so maybe they should be helping him.
