Product Description

On Christmas morning a young boy discovers a beautiful velveteen rabbit nestled in his stocking. He plays with his new toy for a while, but in all the excitement of opening his presents he forgets all about it. Cast aside, the Velveteen Rabbit lives in the nursery closet, snubbed by the more expensive mechanical toys around him. His only friend is the wise old Skin Horse, a very special toy who knows all about nursery magic. As the Skin Horse explains, "When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with but REALLY loves you, then you become Real." From the moment he hears this, the little rabbit yearns for notheing so much as to be Real. How he comes to be loved by the Boy and finally comes to life is a story that has been read and cherished by many generations of children and their parents. Now Michael Hague makes the story real to a a new generation, in a beautiful full-color edition filled with strange and wonderful magic. Recommended for ages 4 to 8.

Author Bio

Margery Williams (1881-1944) was the author of several books for adults and children, but The Velveteen Rabbit was her first and most-beloved children's book. She received the Newbery Honor for her young adult novel, Winterbound. Williams was born in London and spent most of her life in London and the United States.

Michael Hague has illustrated some of the best-loved works of children's literature, including The Wizard of Oz, Peter Pan, and The Teddy Bear's Picnic. He lives in Colorado Springs, Colorado, with his wife, Kathleen.

Editorial Reviews

Hague's paintings of the Boy who loves his velveteen pet are gentle, romantic, and faithful in showing details ... of the original publication period. It is, however, the beautiful outdoor scenes, outstanding for their restrained use of color and effective contrast of light and shadow, that make this sentimental story extended in so apposite a fashion.
