In his "Adventures From the Book of Virtues", William J. Bennett included several pieces written by or concerning Plato, Aristotle, and Socrates, as they were among his favorite philosophers. Three of the animal characters are named for them. (The leader Plato's being a buffalo is also a reference to Bennett's nickname Buffalo Bill.) The fourth and the only female who proves one of the two most sagacious, Aurora is the only exception. In keeping with the Greek origins of the others' names, she was named after the Greek deity of dawn.
