The Velveteen Rabbit

Komako Sakai

Artist Komako Sakai has retold Margery William’s classic tale of the little boy and his beloved stuffed rabbit who longs to be real. “He hasn’t got any hind legs!” sneers the real rabbit in the original version - in Sakai’s retelling those cruel truths are softened and the text pared down. Her oil-pencil illustrations are richly textured with a gentle old-fashioned quality. A tender retelling for younger children. Ages 4-6
