“Cate performs a little magic trick of her own . . . conjuring up two instantly likable characters. . . . Readers will demand an encore.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Ray the magician and his bunny assistant are best friends. They work together all day, performing their act in front of admiring crowds and return each night to the tiny apartment they share. But one day the friends become separated downtown, and suddenly Bunny is lost and alone. How will he ever find Ray in the hustle and bustle of the city? With its wonderfully detailed black-and-white illustrations strategically sprinkled with yellow (look carefully!), this tender story from a talented author/illustrator will have you believing in the magic of friendship.

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.

The whole family will appreciate The Magic Rabbit.
Cate’s pen-and-ink drawings are delightful and suit her whimsical characters perfectly. What a treat!
Imaginative black and white illustrations illuminate the story.
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.
