Of Wonder & Delight
A Contemporary Fox Tale
by Don Harrison Short

The cheeky, curious fox finds boredom in the day-to-day predictability of the forest he knows as home. Despite the admiration of other woodland creatures, he decides to venture far, only to be enamored by bigger animals than himself. The bears and wolf along this new path are in want of friendship but the fox soon becomes aware that there are both good and bad motives behind their advances. He begins to wonder if he should engage or find his way back to his delightful den. Told as a tale of old and brought to life by the author’s whimsical illustrations, Of Wonder and Delight is a modern fable about community, connection, and the value of coming home.

Don Harrison Short grew up among the coastal foxes in Newfoundland. An accomplished artist and nature photographer, he is also the illustrator of two previous books for children: Suzy the Snoozy Fairy (FriesenPress, 2021) and Dolly’s Rescue (FriesenPress, 2022). Don enjoys cooking, baking, hiking, and music. Whether trekking through city or nature, he is in constant search of the wonder that surrounds him, from panoramic landscapes to little discoveries. He resides in Mimico, along the western lakeshore sprawl of Toronto, Ontario. Connect with the author: Website: Instagram: @artscaper.penscaper Blog:
