Book Review


Hank is hired to take care of the neighborhood deer when his friend leaves town. There is an early snow storm in October, and despite the cold weather, Hank feeds the deer with care. Each night he puts a bowl of apples and nuts out on the lawn. Eventually, he begins to wonder if the deer are eating the food he leaves out for them. However, there is no sign of the deer. Hank enjoys trick-or-treating with his friends and the next day, he is determined to spot a deer. He waits in the cold, then he waits by the window in the house—he just keeps waiting. Finally, all the waiting pays off as Hank meets Fawn the very small deer.
