The beloved classic 1922 story (and it's still in print!) by Marjery Williams about how a little boy's love for his toy stuffed rabbit ends up making the rabbit real and alive.


"What is Real?" asked the Rabbit one day.  "Does it mean having things that buzz inside you and a stick out handle?


"Real isn't how you are made," said the Skin Horse.  "It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real."


Beautifully illustrated.  One of the finest, most popular children's books ever written!
