Publisher's Description

An imaginative story about growing up and growing together

Three strangers meet in the forest, each on their own quest: the cat is looking for his ball, the angry soldier is searching for peace, and the rabbit is learning how to grow up. They decide to hike to the top of a volcano together, and along the journey they help each other confront their own fears and insecurities. Though the paths they take are bumpy and tangled, eventually they all manage to find just what they’re looking for.

Perfect for fans of the Frog and the Toad series, this stunning ensemble book offers a coming-of-age tale about fear, dreams, journeys, and family.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
"At the heart of this many-stranded tale by Belgian author-artist Rutten is the love shared by the Stag and the Rabbit. . . . Rutten’s simply drawn vignettes glow with an otherworldly stained-glass light. . . . Rabbit’s adventures explore the pain of separation and the struggle to be true to oneself."

Wall Street Journal
"In the richly hued pages of The Rabbit and the Shadow, the Belgian-born artist and writer Mélanie Rutten uses fine lines of ink and the glorious interplay of bright watercolors to trace a series of short, emotionally complex stories. . . . Strange and dreamlike, it is a book that both stirs and reassures."
