Annette LeBlanc Cate came up with the idea for The Magic Rabbit at art school many years ago. She says, "I was sitting on the floor, trying to think of a story to illustrate. My friend was sitting up on the table with her feet dangling in front of me, and her boots had all sorts of interesting buckles on them. I thought, 'What if I were a little animal here, looking up at these shoes? And the whole idea came just at that moment - that a magician's rabbit was lost in the big city. " Annette lives in Massachusetts, USA with her husband and two sons.
