General Note: Title from eBook information screen.
Summary, etc.: Margery Williams's magical nursery tale of a stuffed rabbit and his quest to become real Christmas morning, the room filled with the hustle and bustle of preparation, a rabbit stitched of velveteen sits perched on top of the little boy's stocking. Those first two hours are the best of the young rabbit's life: filled with hugs and play. But like most children, the boy is fickle and easily distracted—after Christmas morning, the Velveteen Rabbit is forgotten. Shy and intimidated by the new mechanical toys who sneer at him for being simple, the sawdust-filled rabbit sits quietly at the top of the toy closet, aching to be loved the way he was that wonderful Christmas morning. He's soon taken in by the wise old Skin Horse, who sets him straight on the way to become real. It's not about expensive mechanisms or shiny paint jobs. No, becoming real is all about the unadulterated love of a child. The Velveteen Rabbit is a timeless story...
