I wish fairy tales were real, sighed little Lucy Skunk.

Lucy's wish was all it took for Hector Fox and his merry band of woodland friends to set out on an adventure beyond the friendly Green Wood. They had all heard a roumor of an enormous, shadowy stranger living in the Forbidden Marsh. Was it a fairy-tale giant? The five friends set out on a quest to learn the truth, and with some unexpected help, make a giant discovery.

Hector Fox and the Giant Quest is the first in a series of picture books created by Astrid Sheckels, featuring Hector Fox, Lucy Skunk, Mo Marten, Charlie Chipmunk, Jeremiah Rabbit, and some surprise friends. Look for Hector's next adventure, Hector Fox and the Raven's Revenge, coming soon.

Astrid Sheckels was born and raised in the farming town of Hatfield, Massachusetts. She cannot remember a time when she wasn't listening to, telling, or illustrating stories. She grew up with her father's and grandfather''s stories, so it's not surprising that Astrid herself enjoys telling stories--though she prefers to tell hers visually, using illustrations to give a story more depth and dimension. Astrid began expressing herself artistically at age two when she decorated her family's new wall-to-wall carpeting with wax crayons. Home schooling and private art instruction laid the foundation for her artistic education, which was formalized at Greenfield Community College. Astrid is a member of The Western Massachusetts Illustrators Guild and The Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. Her first two picture books featured her illustrations: the award-winning The Scallop Christmas (by Jane Freeberg, 2009) and the award-winning The Fish House Door (by Robert Baldwin, 2010). For her third picture book, the award-winning Nic and Nellie, she is both author and illustrator. Astrid Sheckels was born and raised in the farming town of Hatfield, Massachusetts.
