“Plastic tries to remember a fur-losing accident, but it must have slipped her mind.”
Emily Jenkins, Toys Go Out: Being the Adventures of a Knowledgeable Stingray, a Toughy Little Buffalo, and Someone Called Plastic

“How old are you?" asks Plastic again.
"That doesn't matter," says StingRay. "What matters is how much stuff I know. People who know a lot of stuff don't need birthdays.”
Emily Jenkins, Toys Go Out: Being the Adventures of a Knowledgeable Stingray, a Toughy Little Buffalo, and Someone Called Plastic
