The Magic Rabbit is a heartwarming story about a magician and his rabbit – business partners and best friends – who get separated one very busy day during a magic show. Illustrations, drawn in black and white (with a little bit of gold), provide the perfect backdrop for a lonely rabbit as he searches the city for his best friend. With few words, the author has written – and drawn – a beautiful story about the “magic” of friendship.
