if The Velveteen Rabbit First Had To Overcome A Horror Of Being Handled, That Classic Could Become This More Didactic And Sentimental Tale. Writing In Spare Prose, From The Point Of View Of A Very Grand White Stuffed Bear With A Music Box Inside Him, Shields (the Starlight Baby) Emphasizes The Old Cliché That It's What's Inside Us That's Important. Blythe's (the Whale's Song) Astonishingly Realistic Oil Paintings Leaven The Misty-eyed Story. He Subtly Changes The Bear's Expressions As His Owner, A Girl, Breaks And Then Discards His Music Box And Sews Up His Fur With Black Stitches. The Three-hankie Plot, On The Other Hand, Can Go Over The Top: Lamenting His Now-shabby Appearance, The Bear's Brown Eyes [gleam] As If They Had Tears In Them. In The End, The Bear Is Lost And Reunited With His Girl: He Had The Oddest Feeling In The Empty Place Where His Old Music Box Had Been. It Was... Love. Many Readers Will Lap This Up. Ages 4-8.
