About the Author

Felix Salten, originally Siegmund Salzmann, was an Austrian-born, self-taught writer. He became a journalist at the young age of eighteen and went on to become a popular theater critic and author of the well-known story, Bambi (1923). In 1939, he, as a Jew, was forced to flee Austria and settle in Switzerland, where he died in 1945.

Read an Excerpt


That evening when Bambi and his mother were playing tag in the meadow, his mother saw her friend the hare and introduced him to Bambi.

"Good evening, young man," said Hare politely.

Bambi thought the hare's long spoonlike ears, which at times stood bolt upright and at others fell back limply as though they had suddenly grown weak, were funny. Bambi had to laugh.

The hare laughed quickly too, but then his eyes grew more thoughtful. To Bambi's surprise he suddenly sat straight up on his hind legs and said to Bambi's mother, "What a charming young prince. I sincerely congratulate you. Yes, indeed, he'll make a splendid prince in time." And with that, the hare excused himself -- "I have all kinds of things to do tonight" -- and hopped off, ears back, so they touched his shoulders.
