Bambi’s life in the woods begins happily. There are forest animals to play with—friend Hare, the chattery squirrel, the noisy screech owl, and Bambi’s twin cousins, frail Gobo and beautiful Faline. But winter comes, and Bambi learns that the woods hold danger—and things he doesn’t understand. The first snowfall makes food hard to find. Bambi’s father, a handsome stag, roams the forest, but leaves Bambi and his mother alone. Then there is Man. He comes to the forest with weapons that can wound an animal. He does terrible things to Gobo, to Bambi’s mother, and even to Bambi. But he can’t keep Bambi from growing into a handsome stag himself and becoming the Prince of the Forest.

    " While tidying up I came across this childhood novel and thought, well why not. Disney it is not and I'd forgotten just how graphic and violent it actually was. But that touch of reality only adds to the magic qualities this book has and I thoroughly enjoyed my trip down memory lane. "

    " I liked when Bambi went to the meadow and met a butterfly, a squirrel, a toad and an owl along the way. I liked when he met his father, a young stag. Bambi got shot from "Him". "
