Kate & Pippin’s Family

The Unlikely Love Story continues


Finally, the much-anticipated sequel to Kate & Pippin: An Unlikely Love Story, which stole the hearts of kids, parents, and teachers everywhere.

Now the true story continues. And it includes more than Kippin, the deer, and Kate, the Great Dane who nurtured her when she was a fawn. Because Kippin always bring her fawns with her on her visits from the forest to hang out with Kate — and to visit Henry the cat and another Great Dane in the family, too.

The first book, which School Library Journal called “a fine addition to nonfiction collections and useful for themed storytimes on friendships,” won the 2013 Blue Spruce Award, the 2013 Shining Willow Award, and the 2013 Colorado Book Award. It was featured on the television programs and stations Animal Planet, National Geographic, PBS Nature, and Good Morning America, and many others.

Featuring beautiful full-color photographs by Isobel Springett, who rescued Pippin when she was fawn without a mother.
