Celebrate the 100th anniversary of The Velveteen Rabbit with a stunning new edition of the timeless classic, with illustrations by Erin Stead, Caldecott Medal winner of A Sick Day for Amos McGee.

A cherished, 100-year-old classic gets a fresh and breath-taking new look with brilliant art by Caldecott Medal winner Erin Stead, who has cited this story as an influence on her acclaimed career.

With the full, original story from the 1922 classic, this deluxe, collectable new edition of The Velveteen Rabbit will be the go-to gift for baby showers, birthdays, weddings, and holidays throughout the year.

At first a brand-new toy, now a threadbare and discarded nursery relic, the velveteen rabbit is saved from peril by a magic fairy who whisks him away to the idyllic world of Rabbitland. There, he becomes “Real,” a cherished childhood companion who will be loved for eternity. Treasured for generations, and given new life from one of today’s most exciting children’s book creators, here is a timeless tale about the magic of boundless love.
