"Using the pseudonym Felix Salten, journalist Siegmund Salzmann wrote several anthropomorphic animal tales, including the novel Bambi This story of life in the forest is written with integrity, emotion and great skill Bambi remains [Saltens] best-known work, and it is a classic in the genre of animal stories" (Silvey, 571-72).
