KATE AND PIPPIN- Martin and Isobel Springett
KATE AND PIPPIN: AN UNLIKELY LOVE STORY is the winner of this year's Colorado Children's Book Award. Books for this award are nominated, then voted on by the children of Colorado. I'm often surprised by the book that they choose.
KATE AND PIPPIN is the story of a fawn who was abandoned at birth. Isobel Springett, a professional photographer, discovered the fawn on her farm on Vancouver Island. Pippin was immediately adopted by Isobel's Great Dane, Kate. Over the next several years, Isobel used her camera to capture their friendship. Her photographs could easily be a wordless picture book.
KATE AND PIPPIN have a website.
And a Facebook page.
And a sequel!
