About the Author:

Hello, my name is Sean McKenna and I am the author of a series of young children’s books published by Silver Fox Publishing.  I am the graduate of The University of Hartford with a degree in Fine Arts.  I was also fortunate enough to study abroad in Florence, Italy where I studied artwork throughout the early and high renaissance periods.  My passions include painting, photography, fly fishing, creative writing and just any activity outdoors!  I am a father of two who are the inspiration for all my stories, and the foundation of Silver Fox Publishing.  Each story involves beautifully illustrated animals and amazing backdrops by Whitney Burns.  They teach young children lessons about friendship, sharing, individuality, and more through their unique encounters within their own habitats.  I really hope you get a chance to enjoy all these stories with your own children for years to come!
