The UPSHAWSTARS gave the story 5 stars because the story was nice, the animals were cute, and it let us make lots of wonderful connections to ourselves, other stories and things we know about animals and the world.

We like this book because it has real photographs of real animals that are friends. We like the animals in the book because we think it is unusual for them to be friends because Kate is a pet dog and Pippin is a wild deer. Pippin knows she is a wild animal because she still goes to the forest every night to sleep. But she still loves Kate because she comes back every morning to play with Kate.
