    • Before I dive headfirst into this review, it does need to be known that this book does not have words. I repeat no words. But in no way does that take anything away from this wonderful book here's why So many things to say about this little book. First of all adore the illustrations. They are fun and simple and almost child-like which is a good thing!! I think that kids are able to see a bit of themselves in the drawings and it also inspired our two boys to make a comic strip!I showed this [...]

This book presented a little bit of a challenge because it has no words! But actually that ended up being a good thing to spur the imagination. Which by this picture below you can see is a big one already (my little princess!)I asked LL if she liked the cover: Yes. What do you think th [...]


    • I have always loved magic and magicians. Two years ago, when I was serving as the chair of the Texas 2x2 Reading List Committee, I remember opening a box of books from Kids Can Press. Inside was a copy of Desrosiers's first Hocus Pocus book. I fell in love with the adorable blue bunny (Hocus Pocus) and the four legged companion to the magician, a grumpy dog. Hocus Pocus lives in the magicians hat and causes quite a fuss when he spies a carrot in a grocery bag. You will have to read Hocus Pocus t [...]


    • Hocus Pocus Takes the Train by Sylvie Desrosiers is a cute picturebook about a magic bunny. So maybe Hocus Pocus is not really magic, but he is the rabbit a magician pulls from his hat. He sees a toddler drop a stuffed toy and goes up against a fast train and a meddlesome dog in his quest to reunite the pair. The wordless book in graphic novel format can keep readers of all ages and abilities entertained as the follow the rabbit's adventures.Hocus Pocus Takes the Train is a deceptively simple st [...]


    • Hocus Pocus sees a bunny and when he tries to wave to it and it doesn't wave back he becomes curious and leaves his hat to see why. He figures out that it is a toy and puts it back but then a child starts crying, the magician is leaving with his hat and both Hocus Pocus and the stuffed bunny need to get on that train. However this is not an easy task with the dog barking at him, he surfs the water to catch up to the train, the bunny gets stuck in the door and the dog gets the bunny, he tries to [...]


    • Hocus Pocus Takes the Train, is a comic picture book. There are very few words within this book, but the illustrations tell the story. On each page there are multiple pictures to develop the plot. The illustrations pause on all the important parts of the bunnies adventure so the reader can understand the idea of the book. To understand what the bunny is thinking there are bubbles above his head to know the emotions he is feeling. This book would be great for kids that can not read yet. Since the [...]

    • This book is nicely illustrated. It reminds me sort of like I was looking at illustrations my own child possibly made. I like how this book has no words, but it still has a wonderful story to tell. It helps to introduce children to comic strips while appealing to their interest in brightly colored illustrations. This is another thinking book in my opinion. I love how it allows for the reader to decide to tell the story. I like that there are no words because it allows for the reader to use their [...]

    • Full review is available on my blog: destinydawnlong.wordpress/Excerpt: One of the things that I like about wordless comics is how well they can be used in a classroom setting. They provide an excellent opportunity for writing exercises where students have to provide the text that should accompany the images. It also encourages children to learn how to read and decode visual media. We live in a world where visual literacy is often just as important as verbal. We are surrounded by infographics, a [...]


    • I picked up a pre-release copy of this at a conference. My 2-year old loves it, and we don't mind reading it either. Several times a day. It's wordless, so he can easily follow along and even read it independently. On the other hand, some of the plot points are complex enough that he probably won't grow out of it for a couple years. It doesn't hurt that he has a beloved stuffed rabbit of his own and is just hitting a train phase. This turns out to be sequel so we've ordered the first one. Great [...]


    • *thankyou to NetGalley and the publishers for this copy!this is a super cute children's comic book about Hocus Pocus, a magicians bunny that get's left behind. we follow him through his struggle to get back to his home, and also return a beloved little purple bunny to his owner.with not a single word through the entire book, it is great for any aged children, and even the really young ones can easily follow the story. the super cute illustrations tell the story very clearly.


    • I recieved a copy of this cute picture book from the publishers via Netgalley. The colors are vibrant, and you just feel happy as you turn the pages.Hocus Pocus Takes the Train follows the tale of a a magical blue bunny named Hocus Pocus. There are no words in this book. Early on a little toy bunny is left behind at a little cafe. Hocus Pocus then embarks on a journey to return the little toy bunny to it's owner.This book is sure to delight the small children in your life.


    • Got this from Net Galley in exchange for a review. I like the idea of wordless picture books, except when my kids ask me to read one to them. Maybe I'm an impatient/boring father, but narrating what is obvious from the illustrations seems tedious and, well, obvious.Luckily this one was short and had great cartoony art. Although the story was one big cliche, they did a nice job with the tension. My six-year-old said I should give this 4 stars. (Forgive me, sweetie.)


    • I don't usually have much patience for wordless picture books. Usually, words are most important. I'm slower than most people to appreciate illustrations. Images aren't nearly as striking as words to me. That being said, I am so glad I gave this one a chance. It was fantastic! It had bunnies, adventure, ice cream, dogs and a happy ending. I loved it and immediately requested that my library purchase it. Fantastic!


    • Adequate follow-up to the first book. It's nice to have another wordless series to recommend to kids in addition to Owly and Polo. I probably would have given this four stars except for the fact that I was really annoyed at how fast the rabbit was able to go surfing on a board on the river. There's no way he'd be able to catch that train! Silly to go on about it, I know, but it really bugged me :).


    • A clever comic style book, without words, that tells the tale of a magician's rabbit and his decision to help a baby become reunited with a lost toy. The illustrations are vibrant and remind me of the style of some popular contemporary children's television cartoons. I am finding children especially love reading the characters expressions as they tell the story.


    • A wordless book rich is story, Hocus Pocus finds an abandoned stuffed toy and will go to any length to reunite it with it's owner. Bright comic illustrations and clear action make this read a pleasure.


    • This was a delight to read to my grandson. Very well written, with colorful illustrations that kept his interest.


    • This is another one of those books that let's the story tell the picture, or the mom, or the kid. Delightfully funny and engaging.
