Autographed by Donna Green. Full color throughout. Never before has Margery Williams' classic tale come more to life than in this extraordinary new edition in which Donna Green truly captures the spirit of Williams' story about a little boy's love for a favorite toy bunny. Both author and artist - whether it be through pen or brush - have the unusual ability to express life as if through the eyes of a child. With nearly twenty superb new oil-on-canvas works painted in a fresh, innocent style that is utterly her own, Green demonstrates how compelling the combination of the two talents can be. Children and adults alike will find it difficult not to lose themselves in the little world of The Velveteen Rabbit.

A stuffed toy rabbit (with real thread whiskers) comes to life in Margery Williams's timeless tale of the transformative power of love. Given as a Christmas gift to a young boy, the Velveteen Rabbit lives in the nursery with all of the other toys, waiting for the day when the Boy (as he is called) will choose him as a playmate. In time, the shy Rabbit befriends the tattered Skin Horse, the wisest resident of the nursery, who reveals the goal of all nursery toys: to be made "real" through the love of a human. "'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.'" This sentimental classic--perfect for any child who's ever thought that maybe, just maybe, his or her toys have feelings--has been charming children since its first publication in 1922. (A great read-aloud for all ages, but children ages 8 and up can read it on their own.)From the Publisher:
