The Velveteen Rabbit: Or How Toys Become Real

by

The Velveteen Rabbit: Or How Toys Become Real Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From debut picture book author L.J.R. Kelly, and acclaimed illustrator Yoko Tanaka, comes a poignant ode to well-loved toys in the vein of picture book favorites such as The Velveteen Rabbit, The Giving Tree, and Knuffle Bunny.

Blanket and Bear have always gone everywhere with their boy—but one day they are accidentally left behind. On a daring adventure across oceans and faraway lands, they travel to find their way back to the boy, meeting new friends along the way. 

 

Synopsis:

Nursery magic is very strange and wonderful, and only those playthings that are old and wise and experienced like the Skin Horse understand all about it.

Like the Skin Horse, Margery Williams understood how toys--and people--become real through the wisdom and experience of love. This reissue of a favorite classic, with the original story and illustrations as they first appeared in 1922, will work its magic for all who read it.
