Overview

Simon Fox is a very peculiar fox: he lives alone in Elmwood Foxhall on the edge of an enchanted wood, wears a scarlet waistcoat & a top hat, & visits with his friends Edgar Owl, Alexander Raven, & others on Arthur Bear's veranda, discussing the weather & whether or not the elusive "human" is real. Penelope the girl lives with her father in a croft on the downs far from other people. When the fox & the girl discover each other one day quite by accident, they each become the friend the other seeks, & the rest of the animals become the family the little human has never had. In a forest full of magic, they explore their world together & learn that love, loyalty, & courage know no bounds.

From the Midwest Book Review: "Enhanced for young readers with 24 full-size illustrations & a map, The Love of Simon Fox is unique, original, & exceptionally well written, and highly recomended for personal, family, school, & comunity library collections..."

About the Author

An award-winning artist, author, & filmmaker, Jonathan Schork was born and raised in the Catskill Mountains of New York State, and spent several decades of his adult life in a solar house on the end of an island in the Florida Keys (where he developed and patented several alternative energy systems electronic devices). With a relentless curiosity and a determined ethos of community service, Schork includes among his interests Balinese Gamelan Music, history, public education, science, community activism, cuisine, & couture. He is a past board member of several not-for-profit corporations, and currently sits on the board of directors of a small Tampa Bay area arts & entertainment 501(c)3. Widowed in 2006 after 25 years of marriage to his high school English teacher, he resides today in a partially renovated, condemned house in St.Petersburg, Florida, with his mother, his girlfriend, and his semi-tame, stray cat. Simon Fox is his third book.
