Description

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.
