The Velveteen Rabbit
by Margery Williams Bianco.
Having just celebrated birthday 73, I find Margery Williams’ writing poignant. The new velveteen rabbit asks the old toy horse how long it took him to become “real” through the love of a child. The horse responds, “Generally, by the time you are real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are real you can’t be ugly.” Yep. That’s how it feels.
