Description

A wicked fairy tale of witchcraft, bullying, revenge, and a mysterious bowler hat. Includes Ron’s own whimsical illustrations.

Deryn Hedlight was not having a very good day and it was about to get much worse. He’d read stories of witches as a boy, but never believed for a second they were true. That is, until an unfortunate hunting accident turns his world upside down. What seemed like an honest mistake leads to an altogether unexpected transformation. But poor Deryn wasn’t the only wronged character tied up in these gloomy circumstances and sinister forces.

Deer Life tells the story of a kind-hearted boy from Hinthoven and his mother_s undying love. Mostly though, it’s all about patience, friendship, and heroism where you least expect it.

Editorial Reviews

Deer Life is a charming tale with a lot of heart.

— Literary Treats

A brilliant fairy tale that begs to be read.

— Lost in the Rain

It’s a bit Disney and a bit Dickens, and in the end, love conquers all.

— Winnipeg Free Press

Sexsmith’s novel has much the same effect as his music, conveying uncertainty with fearlessness and heart.

— Publisher's Weekly

Full of mischief, magic, heroes, villains and the kind of lyricism you would expect to find from Sexsmith’s writing.

— Lost in a Great Book

There’s a sort of musical quality to Ron’s writing.

— ReadingMaria

Whimsical, absurd, and entertaining indeed!

— Brains, Books, and Brawn

Simple, magical and entrancing

— The Library of Pacific Tranquility

Written in jaunty prose that Neil Gaiman, Erin Morgenstern and Audrey Niffenegger fans will admire.
