Because Of The Red Fox ~ a magical nature tale

by Jane Valencia

Because Of The Red Fox

Twelve-year-old Shell Wakefield is having a great time with her cousins at her new home on Yonder Island. But when she discovers that the monstrous Green Knight from myth is hunting her, she realizes that far more exists to her life than she ever could have imagined – including superheroes, a universe-shattering destiny, and a friendship with Leaves the Red Fox!

Full of mischief and mayhem, this children’s fantasy novel weaves threads of Celtic lore, plant and tree magic, animal tracking,  superhero fun, mythic beings, and much more. The enchanted forest is closer than you think!

Because Of The Red Fox is a children’s fantasy novel for ages 8-12 (we know kids younger who enjoy it, teens, and plenty of grown-ups who do too!).

Available in Trade Paperback and Ebook (mobi, epub, pdf) formats.

“When Shell visits her cousins on a magical island, she meets a red fox who takes her on an odyssey of discovery in which she uncovers mystery and history and the secret hidden in her own family. Beautifully written, funny and sweet.
Children ages ten-to-eleven and up to at least 50. … Probably best for kids with a high language and imagination quotient. I think Yonder Island must lie somewhere between Narnia and The Wind in the Willows.”

– Melissa McCann, Science fiction author

“Because of the Red Fox is indeed a magical nature tale! The weaving of the tale reminds us that we are all made of many layers, some magical, some mundane, some bold and some unusual, layers which make each of us unique and special.”
