Velveteen Rabbit (1922) Favorite quote: "You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't often happen to people who break easily or have sharp edges, or have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand." The Velveteen Rabbit (1922)
another one of my all time favorites ! Its very different in style and a very heart warming story in a time of war.
