Another Great Addition To The Series
4.5 out of 5 stars
Going into the fourth book in The Adventures of Fawn series – I have a pretty good idea of what to expect from these books. But, to my surprise – Boy was able to surprise me and delight me again. Even though these are “children’s” books, they are so much more. Al E. Boy is able to write stories that transcend the age of the reader and stories that have things that everyone both needs to learn or need to be reminded of.
The Sun Pillar was one of those stories that just jumped off of the pages. It wasn’t the best in the series, but it was definitely a strong showing. Like I said above, I know where Al E. Boy is going to go with some of these stories but it doesn’t take away from my overall enjoyment of them. I think the thing that jumped out at me in this one was the exact continuation of the last story. Basically, Fawn returns home and is instantly swept up into the next adventure. Al E. Boy didn’t give me or the characters a chance to breathe before the next one began. There’s nothing wrong with this, it was just something that stuck out to me.
Throw in the excellent narration by Tsujioka, who has crushed each of these four books, and you have a children’s book that is for all ages. A story that everyone will enjoy that jumps off of the pages and a series that has been a genuine surprise to me. It’s not that I didn’t expect to enjoy it, but I just kept expecting the books to be too juvenile for me and it never happened.
This book and this series have been great – I highly recommend them.
Fantastic! Fun-tastic! Fawn-tastic!
Fawn is back home, and Christmas Eve 1849 has finally arrived. As Santa, Mary, Wajic, and the legendary team of reindeer leave to begin the monumental task of delivering gifts to children around the world, a sun pillar appears not far away. But the purpose of the bright and beautiful column of light is dark and dangerous.
Upon Santa’s return, the moment his sleigh touches down, its occupants and the faithful reindeer will all disappear forever. Only someone pure of heart and with an unblemished soul can extinguish the pillar safely. That someone is…Fawn. But many perils and surprises mark the way to the pillar. Fawn’s very first Christmas may turn out to be her last.
