Farrar Straus and Giroux, 1999
………………………
Harriet Peck Taylor’s heartwarming story is based on a real incident (Chicago, 1996) in which a few deer that found themselves in an urban neighborhood were provided for and protected.

Leyla Torres paints gentle portraits of the entire gathering, and creates a cityscape so inviting that even the wild animals must long to stay.

“A strong sense of community and an awareness of vanishing natural habitats are at the core of this discussion-provoking story which is based on a true event.”
–Americas Award Review Committee 2000
