The Black Rabbit

author/illustrator: Philippa Leathers

Rabbit has a problem. There’s a large black rabbit chasing him. No matter where he runs—behind a tree, over the river—the shadowy rabbit follows. Finally in the deep, dark wood, Rabbit loses his nemesis—only to encounter a real foe! Kids who like to be in on the secret will revel in this humorous look at shadows and friendship.
“Befuddled animals are always adorable, and Rabbit, with his expressive ears and large eyes, is no exception.” — Booklist

author’s comments:
Philippa Leathers studied graphic design, illustration, and animation, and currently works as a freelance animator and illustrator. The Black Rabbit is her first picture book, while her animation credits include work on the Charlie and Lola and Peppa Pig TV series. She lives in England with her family, a gray tabby cat named Emmi, and two rabbits named Benji and Kiki, who inspired her to write The Black Rabbit, as where one goes the other follows close behind.
