Rabbit Tango

Winner Silver Paintbrush 2018

Nominated for the Golden Paintbrush 2018 (Best Illustrated Book 2018)

Two rabbits – a boy and a girl – find each other on the shore of a lake.
But where two characters meet there are also two different stories to tell. And that is exactly what happens in the most surprising way in the reflective water of this wonderful, heart-warming, wordless book that can be read both right-side up and upside down.

An enchanting picture fable in which two animals play, kiss and float, and one rabbit dances to the moonlight, the other to the sun …
Two stories, two covers, one book!
It takes two rabbits to tango – Rabbit Tango is a touching little love story by Daan Remmerts de Vries, depicted in masterful illustrations by Ingrid and Dieter Schubert.

Press on Rabbit Tango:

‘The illustrations have been composed in a truly ingenious manner. This brilliant picture book is just begging to be revisited again and again, to be repeatedly turned over at the end and “read” once more.’ – Friesch Dagblad

‘You find yourself turning this book over again and again, so that it twists and turns as much as the rabbits’ dance moves.’ – Gazet van Antwerpen

Rabbit Tango is a tour de force of draughtsmanship, an exemplary publication, a literary work in all respects.’ – tzum.info

Rabbit Tango is enchantingly beautiful, one of the most successful Dutch picture books of the year. Is it possible to win a children’s literature award for omitting words?’ – jaapleest.nl
