The Velveteen Rabbitby Margery Williams
Synopses & Reviews
When a young boy gets a beautiful velveteen rabbit for a gift, he plays with his new toy for a while, but in all the excitement of opening presents, he forgets about it. But only temporarily. How the rabbit comes to be loved by the boy and finally comes to life is a classic story that has been read and cherished by many generations of children and their parents.
One of the most beloved tales of all time, masterfully illustrated by Michael Hague, and now with a new cover.
