Pequena biografia
British-born Margery Winifred Williams moved with her parents to the USA in 1890. She became a professional writer at age 19. In 1904, on a visit to her English publisher, she met and married Francisco Bianco, an Italian living in London. The couple went to live in Turin, Italy, for many years. Margery eventually returned with her own family to the USA in 1921. She's best remembered today for The Velveteen Rabbit; or, How Toys Become Real. It became an instant classic and has been adapted many times as theater, radio, television, and animated films. In her final years, she interspersed writing novels for young adults with her children's books, and her daughter Pamela illustrated some of the works. Margery Willams won a Newbery Honor in 1937 for Winterbound.



I read this as a child and use to read it to my youngest when she was younger. It is one of my favorite childhood books. :)

At first a brand-new toy, now a threadbare and discarded nursery relic, the velveteen rabbit is saved from peril by a magic fairy who whisks him away to the idyllic world of Rabbitland. There, he becomes "Real", a cherished childhood companion who will be loved for eternity.

Meanwhile, back in my umpteenth childhood, another book I read for the first time...

This beautiful, classic children's story about a boy and his toy rabbit, who becomes Real, is sweet, sad, and magical.
