Praise for The Fox and the Star
"'The Fox and the Star' is such a gorgeous book... the words re
well-chosen and the message is so recognizable and relatable."
-Ferika, @ferikalovesbooks "What keeps the pages turning is the remarkable illustrations, which shift from spread to spread."
-Nicole Lamy, The Boston Globe "Inspired by the poetry of Blake, Bickford-Smith's picture-book fable about grief is awarded top prize for its 'great physical beauty and timeless quality.'"
-The Guardian "If ever there was reason to down the Kindle and go back to paper, this is it."
-Alex O'Connell, The Times "From the beautiful clothbound cover through every one of the striking illustrations, the book captivates. It is a book that begs to be lifted and touched, read and re-read."
-Sally Campbell, Waterstones "The Fox and the Star is a book of great physical beauty and timeless quality, one that will surely join that very special group of classic tales that appeal equally to children and adults."
-James Daunt, Waterstones Managing Director
