The Velveteen Rabbit
This beautiful gift edition includes an exclusive downloadable reading by Juliet Stevenson.

When the Velveteen Rabbit first arrives in the nursery, he is snubbed by the other toys. But the Rabbit soon makes friends with the Skin Horse, who explains how toys can become "real" if they are loved enough. The Velveteen Rabbit longs for this to happen, and one day he finds that he has become the Boy's very favorite toy. They play together through a long, golden summer, Rabbit becoming shabbier and shabbier as he becomes real to the boy who loves him. The rabbits in the garden think otherwise — how can Rabbit be real when he can't leap and hop? When Boy takes ill with scarlet fever and Rabbit must be discarded, a magical fairy appears to transform him into a real, wild rabbit, though her parting words remind him that he was always real to the Boy. A perfect gift for delivering an old favorite to a new generation, this beautifully illustrated version of Margery Williams's time-honored tale is the first in a series of Nosy Crow classics.

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.

The Velveteen Rabbit: Or How Toys Become Real (Classic Reprint)
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.
