Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Starred Review. PreSchool-Grade 2—Embellished only with the gold of "glittering stars," Cate's black-and-white drawings perfectly evoke an urban setting in this tale of lost and found. Street-performing magician Ray and his loyal assistant, a white rabbit, enjoy apartment life and working together. A mid-performance mishap with a juggler leads to a pug chasing Bunny into unknown parts of the city. Love of popcorn and a trail of familiar golden stars lead him to a touching reunion with his partner at the subway station. Cate's succinct text has a storyteller's style, and her elegant drawings have a New Yorker cartoon feel. The sole glitch hinges on the convenient appearance of stars in a distant alley. Readers may be expected to believe magic put them there, but neither text nor illustrations give clues for practical young readers. Nevertheless, this gracefully lean tale will please more than city dwellers.—Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA

I got this book as a gift for a kid who likes to do magic. There really wasn't much in the book magic and magicians. And the pictures were not very exciting for a kid. I'd say this is a library book over a buying book.

This is probably my favorite children's book. I bought it a while ago for myself (I collect children's books), and have since given it to countless friends with children. It's a really cute, sweet story about a magician and his rabbit (spoiler alert: they lose each other, and luckily reunite in the end) but I think my favorite part of the story is the illustrations - they are AMAZING! The whole book is done in black white and yellow sparkles. It's absolutely beautiful.

In this warm and fuzzy story, the rabbit isn't really magic at all; he's part of a magic act. Cate describes him and Ray, the magician, as business partners - and best friends. A mishap separates them and Bunny is all alone in the big city. The dangers are real: a dog, traffic, swarms of legs and feet, and then - darkness and lonliness. It begins to get a little scary (but not too scary.) Of course, there is a happy ending, and I love the way the last train of the night pulls away just as Ray and Bunny are hugging . . . "but two old friends never mind walking home together." Please visit [...] to read more reviews of books I recommend.

This is a nice little story with great illustrations. A bunny gets separated from his magician in the big city, but in the end the two find their way home together. Its a very popular book that the kids ask for again and again.

I am a magician and do library summer reading program magic shows which encourage the kids to read and visit the library. Of course, as a magician, I do a trick or two that are 'bunny related'. I also display a number of books that go along with the tricks. I introduce The Magic Rabbit book prior to a 'magic rabbit' trick and tell the kids the wonderful story line. It always gets a great response. The Magic Rabbit can usually be found in their library and is checked out often. I bought mine from Amazon and highly recommed it.
