Off to the Easter nest! The minibook about Helma the hen who lays coloured eggs
Could this perhaps be how the legend of the Easter Bunny was born? All the hens at hen school lay nice white eggs. Only Helma’s are coloured! And because that’s so, she isn’t allowed to move up into the next class. Helma paints one egg white to show it to the teacher and secretly hides the rest around the farm at night-time. To make sure nobody recognises her, she dresses up as a rabbit. And it just so happens that that’s the night before Easter.
