Rosalind and the Little Deer

Rosalind loves to play with her little deer in the shade of the lime tree. Then one day a hunter comes along with his dog and frightens the deer away. The poor little deer is captured by a king and kept in a golden cage, but it refuses to eat. People come from far and wide bringing delicious food for the king's prized pet, but still the deer won't eat. Then the hunter and his dog pass by and send a message back to Rosalind. Can Rosalind persuade the mighty king to part with his pet and set the little deer free once more? This classic Elsa Beskow tale is published now for the first time in English. With its traditional fairy-tale charm and beautifully detailed illustrations, this is Elsa Beskow at her best.

About the Author

Elsa Beskow (1874-1953) is the most popular children's illustrator in Sweden, where her picture books have been known and loved for over a century.


'...the book's charm ... has more to do with the combination of sweetness, gravity, and grace in both the text and the illustrations. Children beguiled by Beskow's 'Princess Sylvie' (1934, 2011) will want to make Rosalind's acquaintance.' -- Booklist Online '...enchanting illustrations really enhance this beautifully told tale.' --Creative Steps 'The pictures are simple but detailed, with the colors and aspect of old prints.' -- Kirkus Book Reviews 'You feel like you are stepping back in time as your eyes rest on the gentle illustrations of this book. This is ideal for an adult to read with children.' -- EYE: Early Years Educator 'This is a simple story about a young girl who makes friends with a little deer... the message of the book about the importance of freedom is still relevant today.' -- Carousel
