A beautiful children’s book about the friendship of a Fox and the Star that guides him through a dark forest. Fox looks for food, runs with rabbits and dances in the rain until the sky goes dark and suddenly everything starts to change around Fox. So he sets out to find the light again which carries Fox a journey lit by courage, newfound friends.
Inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement and the art of William Blake, The Fox and the Star is a heartwarming, hopeful tale which comes alive through Bickford-Smith’s beloved illustrations, guiding readers both young and grown to “look up beyond your ears.
The art work is amazing in this book, anyone from young to old will find the beauty in this story. When you handle the cloth bound hardback, it feels like a beautiful old edition of a children’s classic that has been handed down for generations.
