The Fox and the Star

The Fox and the Star


***Waterstones Book of the Year 2015***

From an award-winning designer comes an original fable about need and loss

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.

The Fox and the Star is a work of prose and design, each page thoughtfully created by Coralie Bickford-Smith
