  • The Velveteen Rabbit Coloring Book: The Complete Story

    Margery Williams, Thea Kliros

    Paperback (Dover Publications, Dec. 20, 2013)
    "What is REAL?" asked the Rabbit one day, when [he and the Skin Horse] were lying side by side … before Nana came to tidy the room. "Does it mean having things that buzz inside you and a stick-out handle?""Real isn't how you are made," said the Skin Horse. "It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with but REALLY loves you, then you become Real."In a charming, unpretentious style reminiscent of Beatrix Potter, Margery Williams delights new generations of youngsters with this poignant classic about a shabby toy bunny and the little boy who loves him. The tale tells of the velveteen rabbit's happiness as he becomes the boy's favorite plaything, then strikes a sadder note as the worn-out toy is discarded after the boy's bout with scarlet fever. But joy returns as the bunny begins a new life with the help of a generous fairy.A delight to read or listen to, this enchanting tale takes on new dimensions of enjoyment as youngsters are invited to color captivating, ready-to-color illustrations by Thea Kliros of the threadbare rabbit, his loving and kind-hearted friend, the magic fairy of the nursery, and a host of other characters.

  • The Velveteen Rabbit: Or How Toys Become Real

    Margery Williams

    Hardcover (Forgotten Books, April 18, 2018)
    The Velveteen Rabbit is one of many presents. He is one of many around a little boy's Christmas stocking. Shiny presents, mechanical presents, big presents and expensive presents. He is put neatly aside as a never loved toy or forgotten on the floor of the nursery and the other toys shed light on what makes them special. The Velveteen Rabbit listens and despairs. He only wants to be real and he tries and tries to find what special thing will enable him to complete his quest. He looks high and low and eventually happens upon the Skin Horse, a wise and well torn toy who imparts a crucial piece of wisdom. "Real isn't how you are made," said the Skin Horse. "It's a thing that happens to you. When someone loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real." In the Velveteen Rabbit we all learn how right the Skin Horse was. Margery Williams had a particularly clear window into the soul of a child and into the child's soul that lives in all of us. She taps into the need we all have to be loved and find something to love. The beautiful, poignant story of a toy, only looking for love, and his journey with a child is a timeless classic, often imitated but never surpassed. Generations of adults have been drawn to revisit this gem over the whole course of their lives and then pass along the treasure in these pages to their own children.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

  • The Velveteen Rabbit: Or How Toys Become Real

    Margery Williams, Gregg Rizzo

    Audiobook (Gregg Rizzo, March 29, 2019)
    In The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams, a stuffed rabbit sewn from velveteen is given as a Christmas present to a small boy. The boy plays with his other new presents and forgets the velveteen rabbit for a time. These presents are modern and mechanical, and snub the old-fashioned velveteen rabbit. The wisest and oldest toy in the nursery, the Skin Horse, who was owned by the boy's uncle, tells the rabbit about toys magically becoming real due to love from children. The rabbit is awed by this idea; however, his chances of achieving this wish are slight. One night the boy's Nana gives the rabbit to the boy to sleep with, in place of a lost toy. The rabbit becomes the boy's favorite toy, enjoying picnics with him in the spring, and the boy regards the rabbit as real. Time passes, and the rabbit becomes shabbier but happy. He meets some real rabbits in the summer, and they learn that he cannot hop as they do, and say that he is not real.
