Cheek by Jowl, Ursula K. LeGuin

A book that falsifies animal behavior as a mask for the indulgence of fantasies of morally regressive human behavior is not, to my mind, a book to give any child, or any adult either.

LeGuin of Watership Down, but true of so many books, especially ones with wolf-shapes in them.

Evidently the original Bambi was deer-centered and subtle.

While the cover says that these are essays on fantasy, a great many of them are equally about stories about animals, or humans' relations with animals; the genre has changed immensely as our real daily relations with them have shrunk.
