Look Up! and The Magic Rabbit

Central Library - The Children's Section

Presented in partnership with the Wisconsin Historical Museum's Story Saturday, Annette Leblanc Cate reads from her two celebrated children's books, Look Up! and The Magic Rabbit.

 

About Look Up!: This conversational, humorous introduction to bird-watching encourages kids to get outdoors with a sketchbook and really look around. Quirky full-color illustrations portray dozens of birds chatting about their distinctive characteristics, including color, shape, plumage, and beak and foot types, while tongue-in-cheek cartoons feature banter between birds, characters, and the reader ("Here I am, the noble spruce grouse. In a spruce grove. Eatin’ some spruce. Yep."). Interactive and enjoyable tips bring an age-old hobby to new life for the next generation of bird-watchers.

 

About The Magic Rabbit: 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.
