Editorial Reviews

Review

Diane Donovan has been reviewing books for various concerns over the past 35 years. She is the editor of Children's Bookwatch and California Bookwatch, not to mention senior book reviewer for Midwest Book Reviews. She recently read and reviewed 'Far And Yet So Near', Book 3 in the trilogy, The Adventures of Fawn. Here's what she had to say:

Fans of Fawn's process of growth and discovery have a third book to relish in an adventure which continues to challenge the young reindeer with more than seasonal expectations.
 
Fawn and friends become involved in the Reindeer Games of 1849 when Santa gives his duty as overseer to veterinarian Doctor Mary Weather (Santa's betrothed) and a series of crises evolves, from a health challenge to a blizzard.
 
Simple black and white drawings illustrate the dilemmas Fawn faces, from reindeer suffering from mindless trances who try to walk off cliffs to the discovery that the reindeer are somehow being controlled. And in the midst of such a crisis rises an added dilemma: will Fawn be sold?
 
The atmosphere and depth introduced in the prior books expand further with Far and Yet So Near. Fawn continues her growth process, faces a countdown to another (and possibly very different) Christmas, and faces thieves, reindeer-napping, and the meaning of life when everything changes to where even friends and family fall apart.
 
Readers of all ages will find that spirit of adaptation, transition, and survival embedded into a read that would at first seem to appeal primarily to children, with its animal friends and Christmas setting. Far And Yet So Near actually presents many themes suitable for older readers, from innovative and assertive actions, to individual decisions about how to live life and interact with others.
 
Fawn is the perfect heroine: indecisive, yet wanting to do good and uncertain, yet willing to expand her skills and abilities to help others. Love, loss, and threats to everything Fawn holds dear keep readers involved up to an unexpected conclusion which nicely expands Fawn's growth and abilities.
 
Anyone looking for a gentle adventure replete with lessons on adaptation and giving will relish Fawn's ongoing evolution, set against the trappings of Santa's world, in a story recommended not just for Christmas; but for all seasons and all ages.
