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

—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.
