Nine-Coloured Deer is based on an ancient Buddhist tale, about a magical deer who saves a man, yet the man betrays the deer by leading the king's soldiers to the woods, as the queen wants the deer skin for clothes...  In the end, the deer teaches everyone a lesson on how to be good...

This book starts with an adult and a child walking in the woods.  Upon seeing deer, the adult tells the child this anciet tale.
