Passionate about animal rights, Danuta has set up a refuge in her own home that currently houses seventeen dogs, three noisy parrots, and some two hundred smaller animals. Having tended numerous injured creatures and helped them on the road to recovery, Danuta easily identifies with the story of Tenzin’s Deer and understands the mixed sense of elation and loss felt when releasing a healed animal back into the wild.

by Barbara Soros & illustrated by Danuta Mayer. In this narrative based on a Tibetan tale, a young boy saves a wounded musk deer, compassionately nurses it, and ultimately faces the inevitable-letting it go. Soros’s understanding of the Tibetan culture and Buddhism and her knowledge of the landscape are conveyed with the clarity and respect a young reader will comprehend. The cultural references in text and illustration are accurate and vivid: juniper branches on charcoal fires, yak butter, prayers sounding like droning of bees, teapot, costume, and home.
When young Tenzin discovers a wounded musk deer high up in the hills, he takes it home to try and heal it. Through a dream, Tenzin learns how he can cure his new friend, and day by day, the deer gets better. But once the deer has recovered, Tenzin must learn the most important lesson of all: to love enough to let the deer go.
