Bambi and Me...and Me and Mike

I bought this book from Amazon after reading  
Mike Perry's post at his blog titled;
Synchronicity Starts With Samuel Taylor Coleridge
The book Bambi and Me is about movies that bring fond memories from the author's childhood, that had some influence over his future life choices in some way.
I haven't read it all yet, but I found it quite bizarre that the chapter that the book draws it's title off is one of the smallest chapters in a book that I have ever read.
There is a photograph of the whole chapter below.
The whole chapter is right on that above page.
Maybe all he needed to say about this movie and his feelings and thoughts of it are right there?
Here's the blurb from the Amazon page about the book  
Bambi and Me; 
"Bambi and Me consists of 12 autobiographical pieces about how movies shaped the young life of Michel Tremblay, one of their biggest fans. 
Among others, he talks about  
Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, Cinderella,  
Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Parade of the Wooden Soldiers, Orphée and the Night Visitors and about how each led to his discovery of his emerging emotional sensibilities as a child and an adolescent. 
In the piece that gives the book its title, he writes:  
Did you cry as much as I did at the death of Bambi’s mother? Personally, I’ve never got over it.
Bursting with wit, charm, and the profound resonance of youthful self-discovery, Bambi and Me provides Tremblay’s many fans with a clear sense of the origins of the talent which has made Michel Tremblay one of the most important and fascinating playwrights and novelists of the 20th century.

The Bambi chapter sums up my feelings of the Bambi movie - that and the way it is associated in my mind with my mother.
