It’s Christmas Day and a young boy receives a rabbit made of Velveteen. Other toys like Boat or Lion tease Rabbit for he is far too simple to interest the boy. But one night when the boy cannot find one of his favorite toys he chooses Rabbit as his companion. He becomes one of his closest companions. Boy insists that Rabbit is real and not just a toy! When the boy falls sick with Scarlet Fever the Doctor insists that all his toys are destroyed to avoid contamination, including Rabbit. Rabbit is taken out to be destroyed; thinking there is no point in being real and loved to just end up being thrown away. His tears fall upon a mysterious flower. A fairy appears and makes him real to everyone, not just the Boy. This strange and magical world of talking toys and wild adventures celebrates the power of love and discovering the true meaning of what it is to be Real.

This is a magical place where workers make by night all of the things we see everyday. On this magical island memories do not exist in their minds but on their “Past Coats.” The rulers of Nocturno, the Great Goods, want the best of everything for their little island, including Iris. They remove her Past Coat so that Iris will have no memory of home or her mother but what remains is a single button from her coat.The button draws Iris in to find her home with the help of her young friends a young sea woman, Annabel Lee and the Composer Mozart (at age 11). They help to free Iris from the Great Goods and return her to her home with Iris having found out much more about her personal courage and the power of faith.
