I was given this book as a gift. It's really lovely, with not only a beautiful story and beautiful illustrations, but it is also bound beautifully. I highly recommend it. ( )

interesting little tale of a fox in search of his star. ( )

This book is gorgeous in its tactile sense, with debossed pressed cloth cover, heavy paper, three ink colors, and stunning illustrations by the famed author and designer. She designed the Penguin series of classics that I covet (from afar). It is a simple story, but it is so beautifully illustrated with graphic appeal in its hard edges and intricate designs of undergrowth and beetles and of course the fox and the starry night sky. Some cut-out type is hard to read on dark backgrounds, but that only brings one's eyes closer to the book. ( )

This is a beautifully illustrated book that teaches a lesson about hope and going out of your comfort zone. In the story, the fox loses sight of his trusted bright star and becomes too afraid to venture into the darkness. Once he becomes so worried that he decides to be brave and look for the star, he discovers the millions of stars that he can see once he gets a different vantage point. I think this can teach a very valuable lesson about perspective and changing your point of view, but it might be hard to get this lesson across you younger kids. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0143108670, Hardcover)

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.”
