Waterstones Book of the Year 2015 and selected in Time Out’s 100 Best Children’s Books.
Once there was a Fox who lived in a deep, dense forest. For as long as Fox could remember, his only friend had been Star, who lit the forest paths each night. But then one night Star was not there, and Fox had to face the forest all alone and learns to embrace life and the world around us. It is a book that crackles with imagination and wonder.
Beautifully created by acclaimed book designer Coralie Bickford-Smith, The Fox and the Star is a fusion of the author’s own personal experience, combined with the literary energy of William Blake and the Arts & Crafts design aesthetic of William Morris. The result is a volume that is both elegant and visually unique, a book that immediately captured the hearts of bookseller and customer alike.
