Praise for The Velveteen Rabbit

"Hague's paintings of the Boy who loves his velveteen pet are gentle, romantic, and faithful in showing details ... of the original publication period. It is, however, the beautiful outdoor scenes, outstanding for their restrained use of color and effective contrast of light and shadow, that make this sentimental story extended in so apposite a fashion." --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
