Once you are Real you can't become unreal again. It lasts for always.

This wondrous tale of the velveteen rabbit has delighted readers of all ages with its story of transformation and redemption through a child's unwavering love.
MARGERY WILLIAMS was born in London in 1881 and first came to the United States at the age of nine. For the rest of her life, she lived alternately in England and America. Her first novel was published when she was twenty-one, but she turned to writing for children in 1922 with the publication by Doubleday of The Velveteen Rabbit, the best-known of her thirty books for young people. Toward the end of her life, she lived in Greenwich Village in New York City. She died there in 1944. 

WILLIAM NICHOLSON was born in Newark-on-Trent, England, in 1872.
