Rabbit’s Year

by Melissa Keil and illustrated by Jedda Robaard

black dog books. Australian, Picture Book. Hardcover RRP $14.99

2011 is the Chinese Year of the Rabbit and what a wonderful present to give to a newborn, child or even an adult born in the Year of the Rabbit. If you don’t know the correlation between animal and birthdate there is a Chinese Zodiac at the back of the book.

Rabbit is sad and lonely but loves to play music. When he starts to play he finds that his music draws in the other animals and together they make a wonderful noise. Rabbit finds he isn’t lonely anymore.

All the animals in Rabbit’s Year are from the Chinese zodiac and the beautiful and soft drawings make the reader feel they are being soothed by Rabbit’s beautiful music. A wonderful lyrical story with pictures that add an extra sensory dimension.
