The Rabbit and the Shadow

(2) K-3 Translated by Sarah Ardizzone. In this French import, an offbeat cast of human and animal characters takes turns telling the story. Each character expresses some worry about his or her place in the world, and each affords some comfort to someone else. The intersecting narratives move toward a message of togetherness. The warm paintings on oversize pages combine the personality of Steig's drawings with the saturated color and free gesture of Raschka's work.
