“What is REAL?” asked the Rabbit one day…Written in 1922, The Velveteen Rabbit, or, How Toys Become Real is the tale of a sweet unassuming toy rabbit who questions what it is to live and to love. It was the first children’s title written by Margery Williams (1881 – 1944), who had previously created only for adults. This story eclipsed all others, to become her most famous work, and an ever adored classic for all ages.



I love this book so much from wehn i was a kid! even though the reader was bad the book made it better, I love this book very much and this reader can not stop me from loving it


- Loved it!

I was inspired to read this book after seeing a portrait a section of this book. After reading the comments i think that the one that I heard is a new and improved version. A lady reads one chapter and a young girl reads the next. It’s a great format for this beautifully written children’s book. I highly recommend listening to this book.


Lovely book. Reading was annoying to begin with but then the reader settled down and spat the plum out of her mouth, still the voice is very difficult to listen to.


- Pretentious reader

I have always loved this story. However, this particular reader uses a very affected, pretentious-sounding voice that is extremely distracting and annoying.
