Now, if you’re dying for some horror stories during Halloween season, App users can discover a scary story in the special features during the month of October. This week, we feature The Burned House, by Vincent O’Sullivan. Marcus Aurelius will continue in November.
In today’s episode of Bambi, things get pretty real, especially in the last chapter. It might be upsetting to younger readers, so keep a sharp eye out for that.
Also, in today’s episode, the deer run into some elk. Now, in the Disney movie, I thought that Bambi was the chosen one, and a prince among deer.

Salten’s description of the elk call is brilliant. Here’s what a wild elk call sounds like, in case you’ve never heard one:
I think one of the most beautiful pieces I’ve ever recorded is Chapter 8 of Bambi, with the two leaves. I hope you enjoy it.
