I only remember bits and pieces of the story, but it's about little shapeshifters who live in a forest (I think).
They carry little pouches around on their necks with a little fur, feather, or etc of whatever animal they want to turn into. They couldn't turn into bugs because they would get stuck like that. They buried their dead in trees, and if one of the shapeshifters took a little bark, and chewed on it their shapeshifting ability would be greatly enhanced for a short time (it was forbidden to do that though).
If anyone could help me find out the title to this book i'd be very grateful, thanks ^_^
