    • 1922, Margery Williams, The Velveteen Rabbit
      "Can you hop on your hind legs?" asked the furry rabbit.
      That was a dreadful question, for the Velveteen Rabbit had no hind legs at all! The back of him was made all in one piece, like a pincushion. He sat still in the bracken, and hoped that the other rabbits wouldn't notice.
