The Velveteen Rabbit Coloring Book: The Complete Story
"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 Rescuers (New York Review Books Children's Collection)
Miss Bianca is a white mouse of great beauty  and supreme self-confidence, who, courtesy of her excellent young friend, the ambassador’s son, resides luxuriously in a porcelain pagoda painted with violets, primroses, and lilies of the valley. Miss Bianca would seem to be a pampered creature, and not, you would suppose, the mouse to dispatch on an especially challenging and extraordinarily perilous mission. However, it is precisely Miss Bianca  that the Prisoners’ Aid Society picks  for the job of rescuing a Norwegian poet imprisoned in the legendarily dreadful Black Castle. Miss Bianca, after all, is a poet too, and in any case she is due to travel any day  now to Norway. There Miss Bianca will be able to enlist one Nils, known to be the bravest mouse in the land, in a desperate and daring endeavor that will take them, along with their trusty companion Bernard, across turbulent seas and over the paws and under the maws of cats into one of the darkest places known to man or mouse. It will take everything they’ve got and a good deal more to escape with their own lives, not to mention the poet.

Margery Sharp’s classic tale of pluck, luck, and derring-do is amply and beautifully illustrated by the great Garth Williams.
