An enjoyable review of The (Little) Button Elves by Terry Gustafson. Again, an entertaining collection of tales with something for all. I'm not sure whether I've ever read the story of the button elves, but couldn't they simply count the buttonholes on their tunics?

The rabbit named Winks being kicked into a bramble bush ('The Rabbit That Wanted Adventures') reminds me of Brer Rabbit being thrown into the briar patch. I love the fact that Winks has read about Brer Rabbit and longs to have adventures of his own!

I think that's part of the plot! ;-)

hearts mad delight,
Sing on, sing on, and when the sun is gone
I'll warm me with your echoes
through the night.'
