A terrific book, even as an adult, but it gave me quite a scare as a little kid See, I actually managed to get scarlet fever in the first grade, and because of The Velveteen Rabbit, I was terrified that someone was going to come in and force me to burn all of my toys like the kid in the book had to when he was sick Thankfully, though, medicine advanced beyond toy burning in between the publishing of this book and 1982, so my G.I Joes were safe. What a delightful book
