The series is a ‘coming of age’ tale set in the year 1849. It involves 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.
Book 1, ‘Til the Last Snowflake Falls, serves to introduce the cast of characters, their loyalty, and the risks they’re willing to take for one another. Her new-found friends, Bunny and Snowboy, rescue her from the clutches of a hungry arctic wolf, and a conniving sea captain capturing animals of the arctic to sell to a New York City zoo takes Fawn, Bunny and many other creatures prisoner. Snowboy tries to help them, but pays the ultimate price when he’s melted into a pile of slush. Santa and his wizard friend, Wajic, assemble a rescue team, and a battle royal….with elves armed with slingshots and snowballs takes place.
In Book 2, The Ona Pendulum, many questions regarding how Santa got started and how he manages to do what he does are answered, as Fawn and her companions set out to stop an evil former elf princess intent on destroying the Ona Pendulum, which has kept Santa and company alive for more than three hundred years. On the very first Christmas, shooting stars fell to the earth. Elves went out to collect them, and found each possessed a unique magical power. The largest of these was set into a clock-like device…The Ona Pendulum.
Fawn witnesses treachery and cold-heartedness first-hand, but also learns about strength of character and self-sacrifice. She also learns things about herself. When she and her friends are trapped in an underground tunnel without air to breathe…she must push herself to the limit to try to save them all. It’s an exciting adventure and a history lesson all rolled up into one entertaining book.
In Book 3, Far And Yet So Near, a mysterious stranger has taken control of Santa’s reindeer, who march off mindlessly toward destinations unknown. Because Santa and Wajic are inconveniently away at the time, it’s up to Fawn and her friends to trail them and try to bring them back. The stranger confronts them in an underground cavern…but Santa and Wajic arrive in the nick of time. However, the stranger has a trick or two up his sleeve, and as explosions suddenly rock the cavern, he escapes with Fawn. She’s reindeer-napped and secreted off to England. The young reindeer has no idea if her parents and Santa are even alive…and no way of ever getting back home to the North Pole. Housed in the stable of a wealthy English businessman, she befriends his ailing daughter who is dying of tuberculosis. But the young girl has her nanny write a letter…which eventually finds its way to Santa. With the help of some incredible magic, the girl’s condition is greatly improved, and she stands a fighting chance. Fawn has grown…both physically, and as an individual in her months away from home, and the precocious young reindeer of Book 1 has greatly changed.
Through almost 40 years as a Santa Claus, Al E. Boy developed quite a repertoire of tales to explain and answer the many questions children ask about Santa, the North Pole, his reindeer, and his friends, the elves.
It was this collection of tales which prompted him to begin writing The Adventures of Fawn. Through the young daughter of legendary reindeer Comet and Vixen, he's been able to weave an exciting, colorful, imaginative world which will delight readers of all ages!
Mr. Boy not only hopes you enjoy these tales, but make reading them part of your Christmas traditions, as well.
