This is a tale of vanishing rabbits, wandering magicians and the magic of friendship from a debut author-illustrator. Ray the magician and his bunny assistant are best friends who work together all day, performing their act in front of admiring crowds. Every night, Ray and Bunny sit down together at their little table in their apartment and have dinner. One day, while the two friends are out performing, they become separated. Suddenly Bunny is lost and all alone. How will he and Ray ever find each other in the hustle of the big city?

About the Author:
Annette LeBlanc Cate came up with the idea for The Magic Rabbit at art school many years ago. She says, "I was sitting on the floor, trying to think of a story to illustrate. My friend was sitting up on the table with her feet dangling in front of me, and her boots had all sorts of interesting buckles on them. I thought, 'What if I were a little animal here, looking up at these shoes? And the whole idea came just at that moment - that a magician's rabbit was lost in the big city." Annette lives in Massachusetts, USA with her husband and two sons.
Review:
Thoroughly charming...[a] winning debut.

An impressive debut...readers will demand an encore.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Cate’s succinct text has a storyteller’s style, and her elegant drawings have a New Yorker cartoon feel.
—School Library Journal (starred review)

Seamlessly unfolding in a mix of captioned and wordless panels, the episode will kindle a strong sympathetic response in any child who has ever lost track, even for a moment, of a parent, friend, or valued toy.
—Booklist

LeBlanc Cate’s pen and ink illustrations are a fresh change from color saturation and enough to keep the adult eye interested while playing ‘find the bunny’ on each page with your little reader.

Imaginative black and white illustrations illuminate the story.
—Journal Inquirer

The New Yorker-style illustrations actually teach the rudiments of storytelling to wide-eyed kids who notice everything. Foreshadowing, suspense, cause and effect—it's all here, carefully and elegantly laid out in pen and ink.

Each picture in the book is an intricate delight. ,
