       Additional Information  
      There was once a velveteen rabbit,
    and in the beginning he was really splendid.

    "Real" is a magical word to the Velveteen Rabbit -- he doesn't know quite what it means. But the Skin Horse, who is old and wise, knows, and he shares the secret: Being Real means being loved.

    Margery Williams's classic story of how a boy's love transforms a velveteen rabbit into a real one has resonated in the hearts of children for decades. Now Lou Fancher has adapted this storybook for a younger audience, and it has been brilliantly illustrated by Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher. Here is a feast for both eye and ear -- the perfect book for any child who cherishes a stuffed animal -- and believes in magic.
