The Fox and the Star

The Fox and the Star

"Coralie Bickford-Smith—cover designer for Penguin’s lush, clothbound Classics series—has this time penned her own tale, and lucky for us she has: The Fox and the Star is a lovely, dark fable about finding friendship in the face of loneliness, for children or adults. With its Morris-esque prints, rich colors, and stunning cover of its own, it's also a beautiful object."

From the award-winning designer of the iconic Penguin Hardcover Classics comes a beautifully illustrated fable about loss, friendship, and courage The Fox and the Star is the story of a friendship between a lonely Fox and the Star who guides him through the frightfully dark forest. Illuminated by Star’s rays, Fox forages for food, runs with the rabbits, and dances in the rain—until Star suddenly goes out and life changes, leaving Fox huddling for warmth in the unfamiliar dark. To find his missing Star, Fox must embark on a wondrous journey beyond the world he knows—a journey lit by courage, newfound friends, and just maybe, a star-filled new sky. Inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement and the art of William Blake, The Fox and the Star is a heartwarming, hopeful tale which comes alive through Bickford-Smith’s beloved illustrations, guiding readers both young and grown to “look up beyond your ears.”
