The Fox and the Star Reviews

Brilliant ... A delight -- Philip Pullman
A lyrical modern fable of loneliness and belonging ... A delight to hold and behold -- Maria Popova * Brain Pickings *
Intricate, exquisite... An outstanding gift for five-plus readers -- Amanda Craig, 'Picture Book of the Year' * New Statesman *
[A] brief, beautiful book about overcoming grief . . . If ever there was a reason to down the Kindle and go back to paper, this is it . . . An object of sheer gorgeousness . . . Every page is visually stunning, bringing her fable to life . . . It would, I think, act as a wonderful salve to anyone of any age who has experienced love and loss -- Alex O'Connell * The Times *
It's great . . . Individual, elegantly and impeccably designed, and with a touching story; and it's technically and graphically intriguing -- David Gentleman
The Fox and the Star is not a Christmas book, but it does have a Christmas feel and, with its decorative clothbound cover, makes a per fect gift. The design and drawing are so beautifully considered that I would like to frame each page -- Lauren Child, Guardian 'Books of the Year'
Colourful, substantial and something to keep forever * Stylist *
[The Fox and the Star] has the mood of a classic fable * Telegraph *
[This] beautifully illustrated picture book contains a moving message about love, loss and learning to accept change * Marie Claire *
