A brilliant new talent has a few wonderful tricks up her sleeve in this touching illustrated tale of a little lost bunny and a magical friendship.

Ray the magician and his bunny assistant are best friends. They work together all day, performing their act in front of admiring crowds and return each night to the tiny apartment they share. But then comes the day downtown when the friends become separated, and suddenly Bunny is lost and alone. How will he ever find Ray in the hustle and bustle of the city? With its wonderfully detailed black-and-white illustrations strategically sprinkled with yellow (look carefully!), this tender story from a talented new author-illustrator will have you believing in the magic of friendship.
