The Lovereading4Kids comment
Clever, surprising and touching, how little Rabbit is frightened by his own shadow is a delightful and thought-provoking story. Everywhere the little white Rabbit goes, this big and scary Black Rabbit seems to be right behind him. Can the little Rabbit shake him off? When he tries to do so, disaster almost strikes but luckily, the Black Rabbit reappears just in time to save little Rabbit and the two become best-friends.
The Black Rabbit by Philippa Leathers
In this clever picture book, a debut author-illustrator introduces a plucky rabbit and the new companion (friend or foe?) that he just can't shake. Rabbit has a problem. There's a big, scary Black Rabbit chasing him. No matter where he runs - behind a tree, over the river - the shadowy Black Rabbit follows. Finally in the deep, dark wood, Rabbit loses his nemesis - only to encounter another foe!
Kids who like to be in on the secret will revel in this humorous look at fears, first impressions and friendship, all brought to light by a talented animator. Kids will love being in on the secret that the Black Rabbit is Rabbit's shadow. This is a debut picture book from a talented artist. It includes charming endpapers that allow readers to trace Rabbit's path as he attempts to evade the Black Rabbit.
