“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.”
When the Velveteen Rabbit first arrives in the nursery, he’s snubbed by the other toys. But the Rabbit soon makes friends with the Skin Horse who explains how toys can become ‘real’, if only they are loved enough. But when Boy is ill with Scarlet Fever, and Rabbit is thrown away, Rabbit finally discovers what it truly means to be real.
A very special classic with the original unabridged text, beautifully produced in hardback with foiled cloth binding.
