The Fox and the Star




The Waterstones Book of the Year, beautifully realised as a classic paperback picture book

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 wasn't there, and Fox had to face the forest all alone.

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