"What is REAL?" asked the Rabbit one day...
Written in 1922,The Velveteen Rabbit, or,How Toys Become Realis the tale of a sweet unassuming toy rabbit who questions what it is to live and to love. It was the first children's title written by Margery Williams (1881 - 1944), who had previously created only for adults. This story eclipsed all others, to become her most famous work, and an ever adored classic for all ages.
"It was by a sort of accident that The Velveteen Rabbit became the beginning of all the stories I have written sinceBy thinking about toys and remembering toys, they suddenly become very much alive. Toys I had loved as a little girl--my almost forgotten Tubby, who was the rabbit, and Old Dobbin, the Skin Horse, and the toys my children had loved." -- Margery Williams
