I really, really love this cover guys. Not only is it appealing to my eyes, I also wonder if it’s the same for the youth today. I would definitely purchase this 64 page novel if I saw it in stores
(I may have to check BookOutlet 😉 Haha, jkay I am on a book-buying ban….
Anyways, it’s just so mystical, earthy, and kind of abstract! I love the detail and dark blue — it adds a nice ‘touch’. And if you take a peak in the inside it has an intriguing & very pretty format:
And now onto the synopsis..If you aren’t too convinced that the cover is gorgeous or you simply don’t purchase novels just for the cover, perhaps reading the premise will make you want to pick it up! Oh, and if you want to see more info on The Fox and the Star, I linked the novel to Goodreads down below as well..
Synopsis from Goodreads:
The Fox and the Star by Coralie Bickford-Smith
“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.”
