Review:
This unassuming but compelling urban story - based on a real-life incident in Chicago - reveals what happens when the residents of a city neighborhood band together to save five hungry deer who have wandered into their midst. When the animals are discovered nibbling in a small vegetable garden, surprise and wonderment give way to practicality: How can the deer be safely removed? A solution, happily, is found, but not before neighbors, children and adults, spontaneously form a human wall around the deer to protect them from falling victims to an inhumane city ordinance. Readers/listeners will be pleased by the tale's outcome and impressed by the power of neighborly effort and solidarity. Leyla Torre's full-page, sympathetic watercolors of both deer and their protectors add greatly to the story's credibility and charm.
