The Bookworm (German: Der Bücherwurm) is an 1850 oil-on-canvas painting by the German painter and poet Carl Spitzweg. The picture is typical of Spitzweg's humorous, anecdotal style and it is characteristic of Biedermeier art in general. The painting is representative of the introspective and conservative mood in Europe during the period between the end of the Napoleonic Wars and the revolutions of 1848, but at the same time pokes fun at those attitudes (from Wikipedia)

The Velveteen Rabbit is one of my favorite books of all time. It is a wonderful children's story, but I did not hear of it until adulthood~and it was wonderful to discover.
