Ranger and Keys by Danielle A. Vann is the story of Ranger, the Great Pyrenees, whom Miss Keys, the Skunk, meets on Miss Darlene Doppler Darcy's unique farm. Miss Keys' momma has been around humans for a while and knows how to do a few dance steps, and she longs to be a STAR! She leaves in search of fame and glory. Darlene introduces Miss Keys to Ranger and the bright side of the story begins from there when they become good friends. They decide to see the world and they set off. The news of their travels spreads far and wide and everyone who saw them took pictures. One night during their travels, snow sets in. Though Ranger wraps Miss Keys in his fur, she is still cold. Miss Lollie, a ranch hand, takes them home, gives them food, and keeps them warm. But Ranger and Miss Keys realize that they are missing Miss Darlene and her farm. Will Miss Lollie take them back home?
It's a beautiful story with a beautiful message that 'home is truly the best place to be.' The illustrations are as adorable as the characters, Ranger and Miss Keys, and they breathe life and movement into the story. The book speaks about love, friendship, and the importance of home. It's a good bedtime storybook, and parents and grandparents can read the adventures of Ranger and Miss Keys to their kids and grandkids. The story is also good for read aloud sessions in classrooms and school libraries.
