The Adventures of Fawn continue as the young reindeer, Bunny, Doctor Weather and friends trail Santa’s reindeer after they come under the control of a mysterious stranger, and suddenly, mindlessly march off together. “Far And Yet So Near” sees the group led to an underground cavern where they learn the mystery man intends to steal the team of reindeer. Santa and Wajic turn up in the nick of time…and it looks like everyone is rescued. But the stranger has a few tricks up his sleeve, and explosions unexpectedly rock the cavern as he makes good his escape. But not before he ‘reindeer-naps’ Fawn. She soon finds herself a pet in an English manor house near London. Will Fawn ever return to the North Pole? Will anyone ever be able to find her? Did Santa, Wajic, Doctor Weather and the reindeer perish in the explosions? Read “Far And Yet So Near” to find out!
In the third adventure focusing on Fawn, Far and Yet So Near, Santa’s reindeer are being controlled by a mysterious stranger and mindlessly march off together to an abandoned cavern. Santa comes to the rescue, but in the heat of the moment, Fawn is reindeer-napped, and ends up in an English manor house near London. Will she ever return to the North Pole? Will her friends find her? And who is the mysterious stranger who wanted to kidnap the reindeers?
This is my favorite Fawn adventure so far. As with the other books, the writing is clear, fast-paced, and immediately pulls the reader into the story. Fawn has grown and changed as a character throughout the books, and I’m amazed by how different she is from book one, yet still somehow, she’s still the Fawn I’ve grown to care for.
The book is imaginative and suspenseful, and my favorite of the series so far. Kids will love this, especially now winter and Christmas time are coming up.
