It’s Easter! Bluey and Bingo think the Bunny has forgotten them again, until a clue takes them on an egg hunt . . .
But these are not ordinary written clues that might be tricky for them to read – these are clues that make them (and the reader) think hard about where they have to look next. But one has them stumped and another takes them to a most unusual place where they have to put their brave on..
And yet, there is still no secret stash. Are Bluey and Bingo so insignificant they are forgettable-again?
There is no doubting the popularity of Bluey and Bingo and to have them feature in a story like this that is not only a situation that young readers will resonate with but also involve them as they help Bluey and her sister solve the clues is perfect. So while they can see the episode itself online or on television, rather than a fleeting glimpse, this print version gives them the chance to take their time, to study the clues and work them out engaging them closely with the illustrations and the story, giving them satisfaction when they finally make the connections. The value of this blue heeler family in the lives of our littlies cannot be underestimated.
