Summary

A modern fairytale about sisterhood, forgiveness, and redemption in the vein of The Girl Who Drank the Moon and The One and Only Ivan.

Off the coast of Ireland, on the island of Hybrasil, lives a magician and four enchanted rabbit sisters. One by one, the rabbits have been leaving the island, accompanied by a boy and his boat. When the rabbits leave, they can turn back into girls. 

The last rabbit, Albie, remains. She doesn't want to leave, but the island is sinking. Before deciding where she wants to go, Albie visits each of her sisters. Caragh has joined a circus. Isolde is the captain of a pirate ship. And Rory wants to go home to the family's house in Cork. 

Through many furry twists and hoppity turns, we learn how one mistake can lead to many consequences, and that forgiveness and family are always within reach.

Critic reviews

“In Albie’s strong first-person voice, Thomas narrates the rabbit’s journey through time and space and her attempts to reassemble her family, exploring the cost of action and inaction via an immersive adventure that references Celtic folklore and children’s classics.” (Publishers Weekly, starred review) 

“A spellbinding and heart-racing fairy tale about family, loss, and redemption, wrapped up in magic and mythology.” (Kirkus Reviews

“There’s an atmosphere of cryptic connections and the enigmatic forces at play just outside the story’s frame, and questions of loss, destiny, and love expand through the heartwarming tale.” (The Horn Book
