It chronicles the story of a stuffed rabbit and his quest to become real through the love of his owner. The book was first published in 1922 and has been republished many times since.

    oh, my. I just listened to The Velveteen Rabbit — and the dedication to Vanessa Hart who was my introductory and all too short audiobookcoach. What a generous tribute.I enjoyed each moment. My mahalo (thank you) to you and narrator Margery Williams for your gift.

    • Thanks, Carol! I’ve just realized that the introduction on there is actually for the full collection (which is dedicated to Vanessa Hart), but because it appears first in the collection, it also was included in this piece’s introduction. I’ll be taking that off, only because it’s really for the whole collection – but didn’t want you to wonder where it went! It’s still there, when folks download the full collection 🙂
