Just before we start tucking into our figolli, we thought it would better to wish you all a Happy Easter! There’s nothing better than enjoying your figolla while reading a good book – and we have just the right one for the occasion: Paskal u t-tellieqa għall-bajd tal-Għid.
Paskal the Easter Bunny, wakes up to the shocking news that his hare cousin was beaten by a tortoise in a race, and he is determined to save his reputation!
This is a fun reworking of the classic Aesop fable, with the very comforting moral that slow and steady – no matter what – always wins the day.
Written by French author Pascal Brissy and illustrated by Léa Fabre, the book has been adapted to Maltese by award-winning author Clare Azzopardi. It has no fixed target age and is ideal for reading to children when still very young, to nurture a love of reading.
With lots of Easter eggs hidden in the book’s illustration, this book also makes for a very engaging Easter Egg Hunt.
Enjoy from all of us at Merlin!
