I love stories where the animals are anthropomorphized; in other words given human characteristics. Not since the days when Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer bounced upon the scene, have we been introduced to more exciting characters from the Deer genus. Chief Inspector Bo Deerson of the Deerland Protection Department is called to action when a young buck disappears in “Off Season”. Before that the population of Deerland had already been reduced by 20% in less than a month! Something had to be done and the Chief was just the deer to do it. This is a great adventure read for youngsters. They will learn a lot about wildlife and will enjoy the bold and striking illustrations that accompany the story.
