The Rabbit and the Shadow, Hardback Book


Enter the wonderful world of the following curious cast: the Rabbit who wants to grow up, the anxious Stag, the Soldier at war, the Cat and his recurring dream, the Book that wants to know everything, and the Shadow.

Over the course of ten short chapters they grow up, learn how to live together and to deal with their fears. KEY SALES POINTS* translated from the French by awarding-winning translator Sarah Ardizzone* contains ten chapters that touch on several fundamental issues* first book in a series of five, to be released in the next two years* beautiful illustrations - in Chinese and coloured ink stained with walnut - to pour over again and again* this title received a Mention in the Fiction category at the Bologna Children's Book Fair in 2014What the jury said:A flowing, expressive line and delicate transparent washes characterise Rutten's highly individual visual language.

She creates a world of anthropomorphic creatures and walkingbooks that are somehow immediately convincing as they lead us into their bizarre world, a world that is nevertheless full of warmth and friendship.
