One of a series of books of the "Ark Angel" series. They featured plush toys that were 'assigned' by "Higher Ark" to come down to earth to help a child out in understanding the dilemmas that confront young kids.....in this case ....the dark!
The animal character in this case was a mouse - Angel Encourage", when the mouse reached earth it turned into a real plush mouse, but only to the child recipient. It made for fun plots and stories.
