About This Item

New York: Simon and Schuster, 1940. First Edition. Good. First edition, first printing, second issue. Bound in publisher's illustrated pink paper-covered boards; lacking publisher's box. Good or better, with heavy slant to spine, wear to covers heaviest at joints. Buttons missing from the button box, with damage to verso of page and causing damage to Daddy's scratchy face illustration. One of the most uncommon first editions in modern children's books.


Pat the Bunny (official styled as pat the bunny) is a "touch and feel" book for small children and babies that has been a perennial best-seller in the U.S. since publication in 1940. It is not a book in the traditional sense, but more a collection of things to do, such as pat the fake fur of a rabbit on one page, feel a bit of sandpaper that stands for "daddy's scratchy face" on another, and look in a mirror on yet another.
