Reviews

Publishers Weekly
"At the heart of this many-stranded tale by Belgian author-artist Rutten is the love shared by the Stag and the Rabbit. . . . Rutten's simply drawn vignettes glow with an otherworldly stained-glass light. . . . Rabbit's adventures explore the pain of separation and the struggle to be true to oneself."

Wall Street Journal
"In the richly hued pages of The Rabbit and the Shadow, the Belgian-born artist and writer Mélanie Rutten uses fine lines of ink and the glorious interplay of bright watercolors to trace a series of short, emotionally complex stories. . . . Strange and dreamlike, it is a book that both stirs and reassures."
