Herb the magician’s rabbit loves the attention, the applause, and the carrots that are thrown on the stage every night by his adoring audience. But Herb does not like being stuffed into Abracadabra Al’s hat and—Presto!—being pulled out by his ears. Ouch!

Finally fed up, Herb quits his job as a magician’s rabbit and sets out to look for a new profession. Should he become a carrot farmer? Try his luck as a wild rabbit? Or take a risk and become a girl named Sophie’s pet rabbit? This funny picture book stars a big and floppy-eared rabbit with some strong feelings about the importance of good workplace conditions. Herb is a great character to introduce at Easter, and his story of finding friendship and happiness against all odds will resonate year round.

She illustrated Pickles and I Am Me, by Gordon McClellan, as well as Oh, The Things You Will Need.
