Review by: Jason P. Hill on Oct. 19, 2012 :
This is blatant plagiarism! The "author" takes Margery Williams' classic children's book (The Velveteen Rabbit) and replaces every instance of "rabbit" with "kinkajou", and changes a few small things here and there and calls it his/her own work. C. Dorian has no right to assert his/her authorship of this work, and Smashwords should consider disallowing the work to be offered for download here, unless the author chooses to call it "fan fiction." An original work, it absolutely is not.

Congratulations to the author for bringing to life an inanimate object such as the Velveteen Kinkajou and immersing it with a child's imagination to show strong characterizations of love, responsibility and purpose. A wonderful story to read to your children or grandchildren.
