A toy velveteen rabbit longs to be loved, and he begins to experience this when a boy adopts him as his favorite toy. But the rabbit wonders about "real" after meeting two rabbits with feet that pad softly on the ground and with noses that twitch. He learns that he canâ€™t jump like the other rabbits and that he smells different. Itâ€™s only when a mysterious nursery fairy kisses him that the velveteen rabbit learns finally what itâ€™s like to be realâ€”not just to the boy, but to everyone. Gennady Spirinâ€™s beguiling ink-and-watercolor illustrations bring new life to Margery Williamsâ€™ classic text, invigorating it with mystery and pathos before the rabbit is transformed by the fairyâ€™s magical touch. A historical note is included.
