Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Cate makes an impressive debut with this (mostly) black-and-white picture book. The Amazing Ray is a magician, and Bunny, his assistant, patiently allows himself be pulled out of Ray's satin top hat several times a day in a "spray of glittering stars." (A domestic tableau early in the book shows Bunny nibbling gold paper into the proper shape.) When an accident separates Ray and Bunny one afternoon, Bunny spends a forlorn couple of hours hopping around the city before he finds a trail of gold stars and is joyously reunited with Ray. They miss the last train home-but, writes Cate, "two old friends never mind walking home together," and Ray, in his black magician's cape, holds Bunny close. Cate performs a little magic trick of her own, holding the audience's attention while using no color but the occasional bit of yellow. An animator, she creates spreads, spots and storyboard-style panels that contain a wealth of detail and feeling (Ray's attic apartment, with its souvenir posters and crowded refrigerator door, is especially endearing). Another good feat is the conjuring up of Ray and Bunny, two instantly likable characters. Readers will demand an encore. Ages 4-8. (Aug.)

PreS-Gr 2
Embellished only with the gold of "glittering stars," Cate's black-and-white drawings perfectly evoke an urban setting in this tale of lost and found. Street-performing magician Ray and his loyal assistant, a white rabbit, enjoy apartment life and working together. A mid-performance mishap with a juggler leads to a pug chasing Bunny into unknown parts of the city. Love of popcorn and a trail of familiar golden stars lead him to a touching reunion with his partner at the subway station. Cate's succinct text has a storyteller's style, and her elegant drawings have a New Yorker cartoon feel. The sole glitch hinges on the convenient appearance of stars in a distant alley. Readers may be expected to believe magic put them there, but neither text nor illustrations give clues for practical young readers. Nevertheless, this gracefully lean tale will please more than city dwellers.

    PRESTO! A PLEASANT STORY FOR YOUNG READERS

    Young readers (and adults, too) enjoy stories about friendship. Toss in a little magic, and it's sure to please. Such is the case with Annette LeBlanc Cate's touching story about two best friends, Ray and Bunny. Not only are they best pals who live together and do everything together, but they're business partners. Ray is a magician and, of course, Bunny pops out of his hat. All goes well until the day there is a ruckus on a crowded sidewalk, Bunny is frightened and runs off. Being lost in a big city is hard on anyone but it's especially difficult for a small white rabbit. How the devoted duo are reunited is the crux of the story. Illustrations are in black and white save for gold stars rather than the full-color full-page paintings that are so often the mark of a young readers' book. I found Cate's choice to be very effective. Enjoy! - Gail Cooke
