"Rabbits cannot sing. They can do a good many clever and thoughtful things, even some rather prolific things (which I shall not touch upon at present), but they cannot sing. Armed with this intimate tid bit of self awareness, Mr. Rabbit took up symphonic conducting." Charles Van Sandwyk is a Vancouver artist and author who has attained renowned status and won numerous awards as a fantasy artist. His paintings can be found in the National Gallery of Canada.
