Review:
Written in the style of older toy and animal fantasies, there are echoes of Velveteen Rabbit and Mother West Wind in this small gem. Jeremy is a stuffed rabbit sewn with love in England who comes to life as an honest bunny, as was intended by his maker. Meant for someone in North Carolina, Jeremy refuses his shipping box and sets out on his own. Adventures ensue in this charming book, enough to fill the heads of a host of interested children. With elegant writing, touches of humor, delicate illustrations, and a bit of a psalm to carry both Jeremy and his readers to their destination, we are enchanted.
