I picked up That Rabbit Belongs to Emily Brown by Cressida Cowell at the library last night and read it for the first time. The story is very charming and the illustrations are fabulous. It is about a little girl and her stuffed rabbit Stanley who have amazing adventures together. The Queen covets the rabbit and tries to bribe Emily to give it up. At one point Emily is offered 'all the toys she could ever desire'. At the end of the book I asked my daughter what she would do in the same situation. "I would say 'NO' because I already have too many toys!" Hmmmm. Well as least she can admit it. And I have a great comeback for the next time she asks me to buy anything.
