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.

—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.

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.
