Hilda the hen has laid the most beautiful egg, and she fusses over it lovingly. But weeks go by and her baby still doesn't hatch. Then one day, Hilda hears a tiny voice from inside the egg: "Mother, when is Easter?" Hilda doesn't know for sure. Sometimes Easter is in March, sometimes in April. It seems to change every year. But Hilda's little chick wants to hatch on Easter Sunday, to be a true Easter chick, so Hilda makes it her mission to find the answer.
A doting mother and her determined baby - with some advice from a wise owl - create an Easter dream come true in this delightful holiday story.
