Williams, Margery: The Velveteen Rabbit (illus). v2. 03 Feb 2020

The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams (1881–1944)
Illustrated by William Nicholson (1872–1949)


Because the first-edition illustrations have come into the Public Domain in "Life+70" countries, here is version 2 of The Velveteen Rabbit. (I posted version without illustrations several years ago.)


This short work is subtitled “How Toys Become Real,” and that is the main theme of this story. It recounts the tale of a toy stuffed rabbit and his quest to become Real through the love of his Boy.

---------------
Margery Williams Bianco was an English-American author, primarily of popular children's books. A professional writer from the age of nineteen, she achieved lasting fame at forty-one with the 1922 publication of her first children's book, the classic that is her best-known work, The Velveteen Rabbit. The story has received a number of awards, and has been adapted numerous times for the stage and for animated and live-action film and television.

Williams produced numerous books and short stories. The undertone of sadness and the themes of death and loss that flow through her children's books have been criticized by some reviewers, but Williams always maintained that hearts acquire greater humanity through pain and adversity. There was always melancholy, but in the end the reader emerged spiritually uplifted.

First published in 1922, this book is in the public domain in countries where copyright is “Life+70” or less, and in the USA.
