Penina Levine has a bossy best friend, a tattletale sister, crazy parents, and a big, fat zero on her school assignment to write a letter as the Easter Bunny. It was a stupid assignment, completely impossible, totally unfair. Peninaís never going to do itónot everóand itís no use telling her parents about it. They never listen to her anyway. But Peninaís grandmother does. Grandma doesnít think Penina should do the assignment. Itís a matter of principle. Itís a matter of strength. Itís a matter of five thousand years of history and a couple dozen hard-boiled eggs.
