Book Description

Independent Reading Level: 3rd grade and up.
Listening Level: Kinder and up.

One foggy night, a little fawn wanders away from his mother and the safety of a quiet meadow in the middle of a thick, dark forest. From the shadows of the underbrush, a stranger approaches the lonely young deer, and with a seemingly gentle demeanor, lures the youngster into the woods with the promise of the most delicious strawberries in the forest. It is not long before the fawn begins to feel something is wrong, and in the depths of a gloomy gully, he is proven correct!

What follows is a thrilling, yet vital lesson in survival. Daniel Derasaugh presents an exciting and powerful story that is beautifully illustrated by Alicia Templin. Together they create a concrete example that any parent or teacher can use to explain to their children not only that they should never go with strangers, but also why.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely gorgeous picture book about stranger danger November 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
My son (7) and I reviewed this book for Mother Daughter Book Reviews. Here are our thoughts:


This book is about a fox, a fawn, and the fawn's Mom. The fawn was playing in a meadow and he found a scent he really liked. He followed it until he found a strawberry plant and he ate the last strawberry. Then a fox, who was watching every movement he made, came out and said he knew where there were the most red and juicy strawberries in the whole forest. So, he led the fawn there and there was a fallen tree and the fox said the strawberries were behind the tree. Then, a wolf jumped out and tried to chase him to eat him. The Mom came out and hurt the wolf and saved her baby. I really liked the pictures and it looks really cool how the pictures are grey and black; but, I also want to see what it looks like in full colour. My favorite part of the book is when the fawn gets saved by his mommy; because the fawn is cute and I didn't want him to get hurt or die. I learned to never follow strangers which I already knew. I loved the book - it was extremely good and I want to read it every day! I want to give this book one thousand ten million infinity million thousand a hundred fifty stars, but my Mom won't let me. She'll only let me give 5. I think everybody would like this book. I also think that deer, foxes, wolves, and turtles would like this book.


Well, I just loved this book for its clear and important underlying message, the great tension-filled story, and the absolutely gorgeous illustrations. There's a reason my son gives it "one thousand ten million infinity million thousand a hundred fifty stars". I highly recommend The Fox and The Fawn for ages 4+.

More About the Author

Daniel Derasaugh (1981-STILL ALIVE!)

I have never been very good at writing biographies, even mini ones like this. However, there is a nice little mini-bio at the end of my book; The Fox and the Fawn, that I will use parts of, and add a little bit to:

I have loved making up and writing stories since I received my first "free-write" assignment in elementary school at Furneaux Elementary. I have worked with children since 2003 and one of my favorite activities is telling stories to them, often making them up as I go. If any of those kids see this page I am sure they would remember tales of a certain enormously unlucky cat that just never seemed to run out of lives.

The Fox and the Fawn is the first book that I have finished and published, and I have Alicia Templin to thank for that. If not for her, this book would still be a word file accompanied by my own lack luster drawings. She is an amazing person that I am beyond blessed to not only have as the illustrator of my book, but also a friend. Her talent adds a life to the story that I could never have imagined on my own.
