Velveteen rabbit. This was my favorite book as a child, and it was illustrated with him looking like this. I have to remember this for my own children.

Soft toy

Toy rabbit called 'Tiny': upright stance: printed cream velvet with brown spots: English?, ca 1902

Reminds me of our moonlight ride on March 24, 1999 & the rabbits that lined the road.
