Imagine that: even young reindeer experience teen angst!
Meet Fawn, a young deer with famous parents, who longs for adventure and wants to be her own person. Her parents? None other than THE Comet and Vixen. Imagine the pressure growing up in the shadow of Santa Land and this famous pair <wink, wink>.
That's exactly what author Al E. Boy imagines in his charming Christmas-themed, 3-book series for middle graders and young adults, The Adventures of Fawn. I'm pleased to partner with Sage's Blog Tours to introduce you to Al's books and meet the author. (Hey, he used to be Santa Claus!)
About the Books and Series
Title: The Adventures of Fawn Series | Author Al E. Boy | Publication Dates: 2014-2016 | Publisher: Al E. Boy | Pages: 32 | Recommended Ages: 8-18
The Adventures of Fawn series is a coming-of-age tale set in the year 1849. It tells of the adventures of Fawn, the precocious young daughter of legendary reindeer, Comet and Vixen. Initially, she has no friends and spends her days alone in the stable at Santa’s Village. She argues with her parents…wanting the freedom to go outside the Village to explore. But her parents forbid her to go outside by herself.
Declaring, “I don’t care how dangerous it is…I want some fun and excitement!” Fawn starts sneaking out each day. She makes friends quite readily, but just as quickly finds herself in dangerous situations.
Til the Last Snowflake Falls introduces the characters and finds Fawn a prisoner of a conniving sea captain intent on capturing arctic animals to sell to a New York City zoo.
In The Ona Pendulum, Fawn and friends must stop an evil former-elf princess from destroying the device which enables Santa and company to live for hundreds of years. In the process, Fawn learns how young Kristoff Kringle went from making hand-crafted toys in his family’s workshop, to being an icon of Christmas and leader of hundreds of elves.
In Far And Yet So Near, a mysterious stranger gains control of Santa’s reindeer, who mindlessly march off toward destinations unknown. Fawn and her companions trail them, trying to find a way of freeing them, and encounter dangers along the way. Santa and his wizard friend, Wajic, appear in the nick of time to save the day, but explosions suddenly catch everyone by surprise. The stranger ‘reindeer-naps’ Fawn, and she’s spirited off to England…with no way of knowing if her parents and Santa are still alive, and no way of escaping and getting back to the North Pole
