Roll up! Roll up! There’s a magic show in town!

Magician Monsieur Lapin is a magician extraordinaire, known everywhere for his astonishing magic tricks, particularly those involving rabbits.

When Monsieur Lapin decides to take on an assistant, he can’t believe his luck when he comes upon Houdini the rabbit. Not only does Houdini love magic, he’s got a few tricks up his sleeve too for organising the theatre and managing all the other rabbits. Together they are the perfect double act until one day the magic goes awry…

When Monsieur Lapin suddenly finds his magic has made him more than a little bit twitchy, it’s up to Houdini and the other rabbits to save the day and reverse the spell.

Shortlisted for Read it Again! - The Cambridgeshire Children's Picture Book Award.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Inventive and detailed, with fresh, witty design and layout, this is a star of a picture book and Meg McLaren is a new talent to watch." * Lovereading4Kids *
"A funny and entertaining story" * Guardian, The Best New Children's Books *
"McLaren hits all the right notes with this spare but exhilarating text, bringing it to rich visual life with dynamic and comically energetic illustrations. No page turn goes unrewarded, and readers of any age will rush to see the rabbits' ironic background antics. A study in leporine whimsy with lingering poignance." * Kirkus *
"The razzle-dazzle magic performed by the two lead characters and the sizable cast of chubby rabbits is adeptly captured in the whimsical illustrations." * Booklist *
"This captivating telling isn't a typical pulling-a-rabbit-out-of-a-hat tale... Young readers will not only enjoy the narrative but will also pick up the hidden cues woven into the illustrations." * School Library Journal *
