For 75 years this children's classic has been offering the ultimate answer to the question: what is real? As the Skin Horse says, "Real isn't how you are made. It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time . . . then you become real."
In honor of this timeless favorite and especially for Easter giving, Doubleday has issued the original story and illustrations as they first appeared in 1922.
Every child wants to know you can't be ugly if you are loved. Come to think of it, so does every adult. Here's to 75 more!
