Velveteen Rabbit, The

About the Story

Velveteen Rabbit, The

Margery Williams (1881-1944) was born in London and moved to the United States in 1890. Williams published her first book, The Velveteen Rabbit, in 1922, and it became an instant classic. Williams went on to write several other books and short stories for children including Poor Cecco, The Little Wooden Doll, and The Skin Horse. Themes of death and change are prevalent in Williams’ works as she was greatly influenced by her father’s untimely death when she was just seven years old.
