Additional Notes

From The Publisher*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 motheṟs undying love. Mostly though, it's all about patience, friendship, and heroism where you least expect it.
From The Publisher*A humorously dark fairy tale of witchcraft, bullying, revenge, and a mysterious bowler hat. Ron Sexsmith takes the visual way with words usually showcased in his award-winning music and brings it to this whimsical yet serious story about a boy who finds out what happens when you kill a dog that belongs to a witch.
Review Quote*There's a sort of musical quality to Ron's writing.
