Kate & Pippin: An Unlikely Love Story

Kate & Pippin: An Unlikely Love Story Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Pippin, a fawn abandoned by her mother, cries out for help, she is found by author Isobel Springett. After carrying the tiny fawn back to her home, Isobel places Pippin next to Kate, a Great Dane who has never had puppies of her own.

What follows is a remarkable and unlikely friendship. Kate successfully raises Pippin to be an independent deer, and Pippin always returns from the forest to visit her best friend.

With simple text and stunning photographs, Kate and Pippin, and their one-of-a-kind friendship, come to life in an irresistible way!

Review:

"A sister-and-brother team document the relationship that develops between a fawn and a Great Dane, Kate. After Isobel Springett rescues the fawn (who she names Pippin) and places her next to Kate, 'being a mom to the little deer' comes naturally to the dog. Crisp photographs depict the two animals playing with one another, Pippin being fed sheep's milk from a bottle, and the deer taking her first tentative steps away from the house. The Springetts stick to the familiar but effective formula of accessible prose and adorable photographs seen in earlier stories of animal kingdom odd couples, such as Owen & Mzee, Tarra & Bella, and Suryia and Roscoe. Ages 4 — 8." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
