This is such a sweet story. I'd seen the videos online, and found out that there was a book. The book tells the whole story. Such great pictures of these two friends--one a great Dane and one a young deer. I can not imagine any child (or adult--I'm 66) who wouldn't fall in love with this book!
The story is sweet but not syrupy and the photos are beautiful. This friendship is charming. I keep this on my Nook so I'll always have something endearing and inspiring to look at.
