Frightened off the meadow by the sounds of gunshots, attacked by dogs, and captured by Man, a young deer finds himself face to face with humans. In time, he learns to trust and love them as he becomes part of their world. As the seasons pass, Harold grows bigger and wiser, but will he ever see his family again?
We received this book to give an honest review.
K and I both enjoyed this book as we loved to see if Harold was ever going to be able to get home.
Harold whose real name is Jonathan was helped out by man when he had gotten hurt one day in the forest as a fawn. Through Harold/Jonathan's eyes we see what he gets to experience from trying cake for the first time, to getting close to the family and the animals that are around him at the family's home. Harold thinks about his family from time to time so when he becomes old enough to be in the wild will he take it or decide to stay?
Honestly this was a lovely book that was fun to read from an animal's p.o.v. with short chapters.

Hannah England is a budding young homeschooled author. Her debut work, 'Discovering Harold', is the first in a number of planned literary adventures. Her gift for storytelling was evident from a young age, as she often entertainingly regaled her family with creative tales during evenings of family time and road trips in the car. She is fan of Shakespearian plays (at least those she has explored thus far), as well as the works of Jane Austen and Jack London. Our young author often muses over the beauty she finds about her and loves finding ways of sharing those experiences through her bubbly personality and the natural humor so evident in her writing style. Hannah lives in Boiling Springs, SC with her Mom, Dad, sister, and two brothers.
