Decades ago when I was growing up, one of my favorite stories was The Little Rabbit Who Wanted Red Wings. As children can sometimes be dissatisfied with themselves, this was an illustration of how a fantasy crashes into a reality in an easily understood story. Little Rabbit was unhappy with herself. When she saw a squirrel with a long bushy tail, she wanted that instead of her pretty puffy bunny one. When she saw a duck she wanted its broad webbed feet instead of her own.
