Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Spring '13 Kids List
“The Black Rabbit is a clever book that will entertain 'kids' of all ages. When a little white rabbit is followed by a huge black rabbit, no matter how fast he runs he just can't seem to lose him. Kids will quickly figure out that the black rabbit is the white rabbit's shadow and will enjoy being in on the joke. A sweet story about fear, friendship, finding courage, and believing in yourself.”
-- Heather Robicheau, Water Street Books, Exeter, NH


In this clever picture book, a debut author-illustrator introduces a plucky rabbit and the new companion that he just can’t shake.

Rabbit has a problem. There’s a large black rabbit chasing him. No matter where he runs — behind a tree, over the river — the shadowy rabbit follows. Finally in the deep, dark wood, Rabbit loses his nemesis — only to encounter a real foe! Kids who like to be in on the secret will revel in this humorous look at shadows and friendship, brought to light by a talented animator.
