The simple yet elegant illustrations of Petook, a busy, nosy yet wise old rooster enhance the story. The afterword by the illustrator Tomie DePaola really captures the essence of 'Petook: An Easter Story": "Petook's joy at the emergence of new life from the egg certainly echoes the joy of Christ's emergence from the tomb. It also breathes new life into the age old symbol of the Easter egg, helping the reader become aware that it is more than just the tasty chocolate treat we associate with Easter today. Without symbols such as this, Christianity becomes pale."
