Dylan the Deer by Caroline Hall

Deer lay down while the animals rushed around looking for things suitable for a famous explorer. “Nothing too sharp,” said Deer looking at Squirrel’s pine needles, “and nothing too spiky,” he said looking at Rabbit’s dried up blades of grass. “Now I am famous only the best will do.”
