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
