A distinctive palette and a large cast of adorable rabbits adorn a lively story told in very few words. When a magic trick goes awry, the magician M. Lapin becomes a sad rabbit while his rabbit assistant, Houdini, becomes the star of the show. After trying increasingly spectacular tricks, Houdini realizes that someone else wants and deserves the spotlight, and in his most amazing trick ever, he restores M. Lapin to his former self. Generosity and teamwork-and of course magic-take center stage in this delightful debut.
The debut author/artist  Meg McLaren has a BA degree in theater design and production and a master's degree in children's book illustration from the Cambridge School of Art in the UK. She lives in Inverness, Scotland, with her partner, Jon, and their impressive Lego collection. Visit her website at www.megmclaren.com .

Editorial Reviews

This captivating telling isn't a typical pulling-a-rabbit-out-of-a-hat tale? Young readers will not only enjoy the narrative but will also pick up the hidden cues woven into the illustrations. A recommended read-aloud for those looking for an unusual yet simple magician story." -School Library Journal "The razzle-dazzle magic performed by the two lead characters and the sizable cast of chubby rabbits is adeptly captured in the whimsical illustrations." -Booklist "Wry understatement provides giggles? but it's the prolonged investigation of the reversal of power that gives this tale the substance of a graphic novel. It's like an update on "The Sorcerer's Apprentice"-one in which the apprentice succeeds. -Publishers Weekly "McLaren hits all the right notes? A study in leporine whimsy with lingering poignance." -Kirkus "
