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. (Feb.)
