“You mustn’t say that. He isn’t a toy. He’s REAL!”

The nursery, ruled over by Nanna, is full of wonderful toys – a rocking horse, building blocks, a wooden lion, toy soldiers, and a beautiful wooden boat. The boy loves them all, but he loves his velveteen rabbit best of all.

The Velveteen Rabbit will enchant children and adults alike with its enduring themes of love and friendship.
