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.

Born in Montreal, Sylvie Desrosiers now lives in Longueuil, Quebec, just across the bridge from Montreal, preferring a big garden with skunks to traffic jams. Sylvie writes for young children, teenagers and adults, and she won the Governor General’s award in 2008 for Les trois lieues, a novel for adolescents.

Like a classic Looney Tunes cartoon on paper, it's all quick action and hilarious slapstick. - Kirkus Reviews

The drawings are colorful, and the amusing facial expressions and antics of Dog and Hocus Pocus will appeal to children. - School Library Journal

Without words, the book may be zipped through, but younger readers with burgeoning observation and comprehension skills can be encouraged to give art as much consideration as letters and will enjoy testing them. - Publishers Weekly
