"The Rabbit" est un subtil plaidoyer en faveur des aborigènes et de l’environnement.
Très courageux pour des australiens!
Un must pour adolescent mais surtout pour les grands.

I stumbled upon it again here at Amazon thanks to a review written by a complete stranger for another book by a different author, in which he referenced this book by name and author. I ordered it immediately, and am so grateful to have gotten a second chance to add it to my library.
Rabbits were introduced to Australia from Europe in the 18th century, and their effect on the ecology of that continent was devastating. Wikipedia claims they are "suspected of being the most significant known factor of species loss" in that country. Their use in this beautiful book as a metaphor for colonial destruction, both careless and deliberate -- of the environment, of native species, of indigenous culture -- is both genuis and heartbreaking.
I don't have children myself and don't know how old a child would have to be to appreciate this book rather than be bored or confused or simply put off by the bleakness of the allegory... but I know that I found it wonderful, and I am grateful to both author and illustrator for creating something that haunted me from the first time I read it to the moment I was finally able to buy and revisit it, almost six years later.
For any who are interested in the subject of cultural devastation wreaked on the aboriginal people of Australia, the depressing but wonderful movie "Rabbitproof Fence" is eye-opening.
I took off one star only because my children found the illustration style a bit difficult to follow, but the story is excellent and the illustrations are astounding upon very close review. The story is very much along the lines of The Wump World, but more specific to what was done to Indigenous Australians. I'm very happy to have both books in my home library.
If you would like to see more of Shaun Tan's work I highly recommend his recent graphic novel release: The Arrival. It reads like an old silent film and there's no one else's words to get in the way.
