The Chamber Music of Animals by Katherine Vaz was unforgettably good. The idea of a stuffed animal being a hero really appealed to me. I have a strange notion left over from my childhood that stuffed animals can have souls, if they are loved enough, and indeed I think my Mr. Bunny, who sits in my son's bed to watch over him as he sleeps, is one of those soul bearing stuffties! Rangy had more personality and humanity in him in that story than many people have in real life!

Many good stories in this collection! There is a great retelling of The Princess and the Pea, The Senorita And The Cactus Thorn. I only wish there had been a couple more Native American trickster stories.
