Sakai’s take on The Velveteen Rabbit comes from Brooklyn-based independent powerhouse Enchanted Lion, maker of some of the most intelligent and imaginative children’s books of our time - including such endlessly rewarding treasures as The Lion and the Bird, The River, Little Boy Brown, Mister Horizontal & Miss Vertical, The Jacket, and Wednesday. Also: Because Brain Pickings is in its twelfth year and because I write primarily about ideas of a timeless character, I have decided to plunge into my vast archive every Wednesday and choose from the thousands of essays one worth resurfacing and resavoring.

The Velveteen Rabbit was published on this day in 1922 – celebrate with this uncommonly tender and beautiful reimagining by Japanese artist Komako Sakai. I wanted this to be a reading at my wedding, but I was denied. A sweet, timeless story of how the soft bonds of love confer realness upon our existence. The Velveteen Rabbit is a children novel written by Margery Williams.

The tender relationship between the boy and his stuffed rabbit shines through gorgeous, luminous illustrations, transporting adult readers into the world of childhood while giving children a picture of themselves.

In her retelling of The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams, Komako Sakai's text flows beautifully with her evocative, color-saturated illustrations. Written in gentle tones, the text resonates with the tender relationship between the boy and his toy rabbit. And, as always, Sakai's sensitive illustrations succeed in an absolute sense in evoking the interior world of the child, with all of its playful energy and poignant solitude. Her depictions of child and rabbit are memorable and may well become part of our collective, cultural memory of Williams' original book. Sakai's text is simpler than Williams', allowing her illustrations to convey much that is left unsaid, making for a fine integrity between word and image.

Komako Sakai was born in Hyogo, Japan. After graduating from Tokyo's National University of Fine Arts and Music, Sakai worked at a kimono textile design company. She is currently one of the most popular authors and illustrators in Japan. She is well known in the United States for In the Meadow, Emily's Balloon, and The Snow Day.

When I was a very young child, so young that I do not remember the actual gift, my mother purchased the book along with it came a stuffed toy rabbit.

I do recall taking it to her as a young child and showing her that an eye fell off or a seam came undone and she carefully repared it.

I put it away in a trunk when I was in high school and forgot all about it until one day after my wife and I were married my mom suggested that I take the old trunk with stuff in it to our home.

I did and inside the trunk when I opened it was my old teddy-bear & rabbit. I recall reading the Velveteen Rabbit for the first time when I read it to my kids and along with the reading showing them the rabbit, some time during my kids younger years the rabbit gained a necklace depicting Buzz-Lightyear. I still have these toys, and I imagine they are quite real and have been for the past seventy years or so.

Dear Baby-person,

When I heard from your grandfather of your arrival here on Earth I went directly to my bookcase to fetch my personal copy of this little story. Grandfather was in quite the hurry to get to the airport so he could fly to meet you. No time to get your name or other particulars.
I reckon, "The Velveteen Rabbit", to be a welcome addition in any baby's library. I hope you like it. Seeing as you'll be quite busy, presently, growing hair and teeth and the like, and also not reading as yet, you should want to have someone read to you. May I offer my humble advice. Never too early to start. Once you're properly changed and fed, you should want to sit comfortably in someone's lap and be read to. It is the right duty and proper responsibility of those who read, to read to the young. This, as yet, has not been enshrined in any constitition of any sovereign nation I know of, but civilisation, Baby-person, is still in its infancy.
Do not be a slave to perfection. No matter if the speaker is less than the best orator, or speaks with an accent, what matters is heart. The reader must really want to be there. A person with the clearest facility of diction and most melodious of speaking voices, who is thinking of the ball game or shopping, or lunch, whilst reading aloud to you, had better just be silenced. Close the book and tell the creature to bugger off and seek their heart's desire elsewhere. Find someone who really wants to be with you, and a good time shall be had by all.
There are so many wonderful stories in the wide world, not the least of which, the story you shall write for yourself. The one which is your life to come.
I wish you all the best in your endeavours, Baby-person.

kind regards
your humble servant

This is an absolutely horrible edition, in no way deserving of such a lovely classic story. I'm referring to the paperback, brown front cover featuring the rabbit (ISBN 9781511859066). Inside it's basically photocopies, it looks cheap and fake. Indeed horrible. It's hard to go by the reviews, because for some reason reviews here don't match the paperback edition, they're either misplaced or people are just reviewing the story (which is wonderful). Don't buy it, seriously. It doesn't even have the publishing house details, so it can easily be considered a fake. If I hadn't bought it through Amazon I would seriously be considering it was piracy. The picture I'm sharing shows how one of the original pictures (which takes two pages) is a black and white photograph fitted into half a page. Absolutely awful. Amazon should seriously consider taking this out of their catalogue.

This is the classic story of the Velveteen Rabbit and it is WONDERFUL! I recommend it for everyone, kids and adults......But be careful. THIS copy says it is the original edition but it is not the same as the original. (Well, I dont know about the one written in 1922 but I have a copy from 1970 and this one is different). I was expecting it to be the same as my 1970 version but this one is bigger, (I don't mind that), the cover and dust jacket are a different color from the original, the pages are a horrible shade of tan and the coloring in the photos is different. There are many cute versions of this book but it you want the "original" or something close to it, this is not it.

I pray that all ages read this most profound Book....Make sure you have tissues near by and
I am not one to cry! After you read this Nursery Book, please read "The Veveteen Principles"
where the author pulls out the 'hidden' wisdom in this delightful book, God bless, Charity and

I was feeling a little nostalgic one day and added this on a whim to my cart. I looked through it when it arrived and I couldn't help falling in love with it again. This book is a classic and all children should have the extreme privilege of being able to know and love this book.

I don't think this item needs a long review to convince you to get The Velveteen Rabbit, especially if you've got a child to share it with. Get it. It's magical!

I would give five stars to The Velveteen Rabbit in a heartbeat - it's a classic for a reason and one of my all-time favorite children's books. It was a no-brainier that it would be under the tree for our son's first Christmas. I chose the board book, since he's a baby. I suppose I should have guessed that the board book version would be abridged, but the product description did not mention that - so the board book version loses a couple stars for being abridged. That said, the abridged version isn't terrible. It hits the plot points of the story and gets the same message across without changing the included text, but it omits a lot of details and much of the magic of the story. I would have given three stars to the board book, even in abridged form, if the conversation with the Skin Horse had been included in its entirety - but unfortunately, half of that beautiful passage was omitted. The board book is fine to read to a baby or toddler, but we'll be trading up for the entire story as soon as his attention span is long enough for the unabridged text.
