"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.'"--… (més)

I was initially drawn into reading this book by the fantastic cover design, but the story of a fox and his star that is contained within the book’s pages is absolutely wonderful as well. Told in the style of a fable, the story of a lone fox and his star is at first glance a simple parable about finding a new point of view, but like the fox’s newfound view of a sky full of stars the underlying themes are deeply complex and are sure to get any reader thinking. What struck me most was the mystery surrounding the friendship between the fox and the star. The fox is portrayed as a creature living out its natural life in the forest, but for whatever reason it relies on the star to provide light which elevates the star to the role of guide and companion. The star is not seen to speak to the fox (other beings and inanimate objects have voices in the fox’s forest, so I assume that the star also has this abiliity), but its physical disappearance from the sky results in more than just a lack of light in the forest. The fox is left alone, and even though there are clearly other animals in the forest that it could find companionship with it craves the return of its star. When the sky is finally revealed as being full of stars the fox is placated and finds comfort in knowing that it is surrounded by other beings even if its star is gone, but this conclusion leaves me with even more questions. The fox has seemingly returned to its happy state of being, but does it find true companionship with the other stars? Has the story become a larger metaphor for dealing with loss, or is it an ode to the unknowable nature of friendships (whether human or animal) and the strange personality found in the natural world?

Complementing the story is, of course, Bickford-Smith’s charmingly simple artwork. Her linework is deceptively simple, but the complexity of texture and careful balance of colour palette truly transforms this story into a work of art in theme and physicality. I just hope that the small-press nature of this book doesn’t deter libraries and buyers from adding this book to their collections, because I can see it stacking up against classic children’s books like Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are and Dr Seuss’ The Lorax in the long run.

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. ( )
