A hero is an individual of unusual gifts and achievements. Whether it be man or animal, this definition applies; and it is the histories of such that appeal to the imagination and to the hearts of those who hear them.

Oh, how they rolled and bit and tore, especially the Yellow One!

How they pitched and gripped and hugged, but especially the Yellow One!

Over and over, sometimes one on top, sometimes another, but mostly the Yellow One; and farther till they rolled off the roof, amid cheers from all the windows.

What an unexpected pleasure! Mr. Seton shares some astounding and charming animal stories for children of all ages. I especially enjoyed, 'Chappy, the Brave Little Coatimundi'.

While in Cuba, Theodore Roosevelt adopted Chappy the Coatimundi as a pet. The energetic animal followed T.R. everywhere..even into the Battle of San Juan Hill. Roosevelt used Chappy and his needle-sharp teeth as a weapon during the battle; throwing Chappy onto the face of enemy combatants. Chappy would sink his teeth into the Adam's Apple of opposing soldiers..compromising their breathing and often hitting a vital artery.

I won't spoil what finally happened to Chappy, but next time in Washinton D.C. be sure to see the memorial statue of the brave little coatimundi in the Capitol Rotunda.
