Just in Time for Groundhog's Day

The Black Rabbit by Philippa Leathers is a splendid shadowy tale.  Rabbit is scared of the 'black rabbit' that is bigger and won't stop following him. 
The scenes portray a foresty area well, and show all the ways rabbit tries to get away from the other black rabbit.  And I have to admit, I did not know rabbits could swim, or at least that's what the author/illustrator seems to say.  When a wolf comes after rabbit, in the dark part of the forest, black rabbit saves the day!  
The illustrations were done in watercolor and ink, combined digitally.  
This is Philippa Leathers first picture book, a good showing for a newbie.
