Cute story. The illustrations in this edition are beautiful. I'm not sure why, but I don't remember having ever finished this as a child. When I thought of the Velveteen Rabbit, I thought of the rabbit being incinerated. I'm suspecting that the babysitter that read it to me was being cruel and ended the tale prematurely. So, after all these years, I found that I was pleasantly surprised.
And so, evil babysitter, wherever you are...your scheme failed. Muhhhhaaawww, muuuhaawww, muuuuhhhaaaawwww.
