Summary
An all-time children's classic "The Velveteen Rabbit" beautifully packaged with an adorable, authentic plush version of the beloved bunny! The Velveteen Rabbit's journey from outcast toy to real bunny is a classic tale of love, friendship and learning to be yourself. This special hardcover gift edition, which includes beautiful design on every page, reunites Margery Williams's text with the original full-color 1922 illustrations by William Nicholson. The plush stuffed bunny, which has been designed exclusively for this gift set, is made of high quality velveteen and based on these same original illustrations. We hope that he will become, like the Velveteen Rabbit himself, a cherished companion and inspiration.

Booklist Review: "Given to a boy one Christmas, the velveteen rabbit eventually becomes his companion at play, at bedtime, and even during a serious bout of scarlet fever. After the boy recovers, the doctor orders that his bedding, books, and toys be destroyed. The little rabbit lies on a rubbish heap waiting to be burned when the nursery magic fairy comes, transforms him into a living animal, and takes him to join his new rabbit companions. First published in 1922, this poignant story has appeared in many editions, frequently with abridged texts and illustrations ranging from cute to sentimental to saccharine. This handsome picture-book edition uses the full text of the original story and illustrates it with dignity as well as sentiment. Created with ink, watercolor, and colored pencil, Spirin's accomplished artwork features softly shaded images of the boy, the rabbit, and their world. Pages of text are set off with pleasing decorative elements. Set in the 1890s, this is a polished edition of the classic story.--Phelan, Caroly. Copyright 2010 Booklist"
