Title: Hocus Pocus
Author: Sylvie Desrosiers
A mischievous little rabbit from a magician’s hat sets his eye on a bunch of fresh carrots on the magician’s kitchen counter, but before he can enjoy them he must get past a grumpy dog that is intent on keeping the clever little rabbit away.
This zany tale pits a grouchy pooch against Hocus Pocus, a mischievous blue bunny who lives in a magician’s hat. When Hocus Pocus spots a bunch of tantalizing carrots poking out of a shopping bag, he decides he must have them. But to reach the kitchen counter, he must risk waking Dog, a pet canine who snoozes nearby. Tiptoeing in a pair of bunny slippers works beautifully at first—until a peanut shell gets crunched loudly underfoot. Soon, Dog is wide awake, and the two begin a hilarious battle, trading victories and defeats and ultimately attracting the attention of the none-too-pleased magician.A classic retro feel gives the illustrations and story a fun punch.
