About this project

Fox Hollow Tales is the product of two creative minds that some say were twins separated at birth.

Written by author and creature artist, Jennifer Carson, and illustrated by the fabulous Pat Ann Lewis (more bio info about us later!).

Wojer and the Wizard of the Wood

is the first tale in the series and stars a little badger named Wojer.  The neighborhood bully, Lilly, tries to scare Wojer with a story about a wizard who turns anyone who picks berries at the Old Lark Meadow into frogs. But Wojer humorously turns the tables on the Lily and her friends.

The books will be in printed in full color in a limited edition hardcover version and in a soft cover version. It is our hope that Fox Hollow Tales become some of your favorite stories and are shared down through the generations.

A bit reminiscent of the Beatrix Potter tales or Brambly Hedge, Fox Hollow Tales are set in New England circa 1830's and full of colorful characters like Lilly, the daughter of a fancy Fox Hollow merchant and the natural leader of the group, Pippen, who always follows Lilly's lead and Pearl who is more quiet and shy. Wojer is the newest member of the Badger family and has a lot to learn about the village of Fox Hollow and it's inhabitants.

The second tale, Wojer and the Black Knight, features a grand adventure for Wojer and Pearl as they discover a lost town hall belonging to Sir Thomas Badger, a legendary knight of Fox Hollow. If we double our funding goal, we will be adding a copy of the second book to the rewards for everyone pledging $30.00 or more!

Rewards include Skype visits with the author for any family, classroom, home school or library group, the ability to pin to the official Fox Hollow Pinterest community board, original stuffed badger animals, hand painted Fox Hollow chess/checker boards, the official Fox Hollow poster and even a chance to name a village store or road in the Fox Hollow village which will  be printed on the official poster!

We will be approaching companies about character licensing opportunities! If you are interested in licensing our Fox Hollow characters please feel free to contact us.

Pat Ann Lewis started drawing as soon as she could hold a pencil, and filled every blank spot in her mother's cookbooks by the age of three. As she grew up, Pat Ann never stopped drawing and enjoyed learning all about the worlds of animation and illustration. She now tells stories with her love of drawing and has illustrated children's books and created storyboards for television animation for shows such as Little Bear and Franklin the Turtle. She can be found online at www.pat-ann.com.

Jennifer Carson grew up on a steady diet of Muppet movies and renaissance fairs. She is the author of such children's tales as To Find A Wonder and Hapenny Magick as well as a bunch of short stories for young adult audiences and an editor for Spencer Hill Press. Jennifer is also an award winning creature artist who designs and publishes sewing patterns for fantasy creatures and furry animals. She can be found online at www.thedragoncharmer.com

Risks and challenges

As with any creative project there could possibly be some delays in production, but the stories are written and professionally edited and most of the preliminary sketching and storyboarding for Wojer and the Wizard of the Wood are complete. I've set the reward deadline for September which gives Pat Ann and I plenty of room for the finish work!

If our goal is doubled and the second book, Wojer and the Black Knight, is added to the rewards, it will have a delivery deadline of February 2014.
