Abstract:

Davie finds it almost unbelievable that he has a pet rabbit all his own, and he's devastated on the day he goes out to the barn and finds that Shadrach has slipped out of his hutch and disappeared. Based on the author's own childhood in the Netherlands, this tells of Davie's great joy when his grandfather promises him a real rabbit for his very own pet and the anxious days until it finally arrives. Even after Davie had had the little black rabbit, Shadrach, for several weeks, it was still almost unbelievable. Every morning when Davie woke up it was a miracle all over again -- there in his grandfather's barn sat a wriggle black rabbit, and it was his. David had never been happier-- until the day Shadrach slipped through the stats of his hutch and disappeared.
