Review by John Howard Prin – Verified Purchase

Open this book and you are in for an egg-citing treat. Settle back as you turn the pages of this superb story and rest easy knowing you’re in for a jubilee of enjoyment.

A Rabbit’s Tale offers a wonderfully funny, and at times laugh-out-loud hilarious, story of ingenious twists and turns. The author has assembled a rich cast of characters, sympathetically drawn in the case of hero Juan Arias and dastardly villainous as personified by Monty McPride, who messes things up in grand fashion. The array of humanity in these pages spans the spectrum of likeable to detestable.

The storyline is a roller-coaster ride of humorous flashes of comedy and touching moments of tender pathos. Its many twists and surprises kept me guessing about how seemingly unrelated events would weave together, but Ruiz proved himself to be a gifted storyteller.

I especially enjoyed the story’s outrageous central premise, a leap of fantasy based on a stupendous “what-if.” Juan’s trials and tribulations are those of an everyman, an ordinary and decent fellow who dresses up as the Easter Bunny for a kids’ party and has a medical emergency which catapults the antics into high gear.

In keeping with the Easter themes of death by crucifixion and miraculous resurrection, the author presents episodes in Juan’s life when his plight parallels that of his hero Jesus — times when everything turns dark and bleak, but then by some unexpected plot twist or quirk of character the divine light of hope shines brightly and saves the day.

Highly creative, wildly imaginative, tremendously enjoyable — this tall tale has the makings of a classic.

Is There an Emmy in the Easter Bunny’s Future?

Easter Bunny and Tim Finkbiner

EB met with Emmy Award winner Tim Finkbiner outside his eight million dollar mansion. Tim was this year’s Emmy recipient in the category of documentary film, for “Birth of a Colony: North Carolina. Tim wanted to talk to EB about “A Rabbit’s Tale An Easter Story”.

Tim: EB, I read the book and it was great. I’m thinking of making it into a movie. What do you think?
EB: You realize that the main character in the book is not me don’t you? It’s some fictional character named Juan Arias.
Tim: Yeah, I realize that, but the story is so good, with the glimpse into his childhood, then we see him as an adult, and that really wierd accident happens. Wow, then the strange side effects, and that dangerous ego maniac is absolutely despicable. There is some great suspensful stuff in it and I couldn’t put it down.
EB: Yeah, well I think a nice movie about a cute bunny who delivers chocolate covered eggs and yellow peeps on Easter might be more interesting.
Tim: I don’t know EB, this book really got me. There was a good Easter message in it and some other really cool and funny stuff. I might read it again. The reviews on Amazon are pretty spot on. I think they are all five out of five stars. Besides, maybe we can write in a cameo apperance for you. After all, you are the Easter Bunny.
EB: Well, I’m glad you noticed. And you must realized that my acting brilliance can’t be wasted on just any movie.
Tim: Of course, of course.
EB. And I would have to have my own dressing room with a constant supply of peeps and organic carrots.
Tim: Why yes, I think we might be able to accomodate that.
Tim: Do you think you can speak to the author about it. I understand you and he are close friends.
EB: Yeah, I could, but I don’t think he’s much interested in the movie thing. He probably would want to make it into a musical. The guy’s a musician. What can I say?
Tim: That makes no sense. This is not a musical. It’s a suspenseful, wild ride of a page-turner, kind of funny too.
EB: Yeah, well, I’ll have to talk to Diogenes about it.
Tim: Is that his real name.
EB: Unfortunately, it is.
Tim: I think it’s kind of cool.
EB: More like being a boy named “Sue” if you asked me. Like in the Johnny Cash song.
Tim: Hmmm, yeah it might have been rough growing up with a wierd name like that.
EB: That explains why he’s a wierd guy.
Tim: Well, see if you can talk him out of the musical and into the movie idea.
EB: I’ll do my best. If all else fails, I play him a game of chess for the movie rights.
Tim: Thanks EB
EB: Don’t mention it… and remember peeps and organic carrots. They must be yellow peeps.
Tim: Got it.
