Velveteen Rabbit review

  • Jun 17, 2010
  • by

The Velveteen Rabbit is the story written in the perspective of a toy rabbit, and tells the tale of a little boy who receives a beautiful velveteen rabbit for Christmas, which soon becomes the boys favorite, going with him everywhere. At one point the Velveteen Rabbit gets left in the woods near the boys home, and real rabbits creep up to investigate, then prove to the Velveteen Rabbit that they are real and he is not, because they can jump and hop and the Velveteen Rabbit cannot.
At one point during the story, the little boy gets very sick and the Doctor sends him to the seaside as part of his recovery. The boy wants to take the Velveteen Rabbit with him, but the Doctor forbids it and orders all the "infected" toys in the nursery to be burned. The boy is given a brand new rabbit with shiny eyes and soon forgets all about the Velveteen Rabbit.
As the Velveteen Rabbit is awaiting his sad fate, he sheds a real tear, which causes the Nursery Magic Fairy to appear. The Fairy takes the Velveteen Rabbit away to the woods where he was left so long ago and he magically becomes a real rabbit. The next spring, the boy, who had a full recovery from his illness, sees the Velveteen Rabbit, who is now a real rabbit, and is reminded of his old favorite toy, the Velveteen Rabbit.

   I love to read, I believe books are a dying form of expression. Immersing yourself into an authors written world can be so much more satisfying than watching a movie in a theatre or on the … more
