The Fox and the Star by Coralie Bickford-SmithFrom 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.”

The Fox And The Star
However, like a proper silly sausage, I completely forgot to tell you which book it was. In fact it was the cover that made me take it from the shelves, aptly in Waterstones, and then buy it then and there. Particular Books, , hardback, picture book, 64 pages, bought by myself for myself. The story of The Fox and the Star initially seems like a rather simple one; it tells of a fox who has always grown up alone with just his friend Star for company, however one day Fox wakes to find Star gone and so must venture into the forest alone to try and find out what has happened. A tale as old as time it would seem, one which also remains timeless too, yet one which actually is a tale of love, friendship, loss and independence. All good things for kids to learn and for adults to be reminded of.

The page layout and design were heavily influenced by William Blake and William Morris , evoking a sense of illuminated manuscripts and traditional fairytales. Where I felt it appropriate I playfully dispensed with the strict layout and allowed the elements to break out into the margins. It relates to so many situations — everyone has suffered — and it came together for me with losing my mum at an early age. Children seem to love the idea of the friends and the crazy illustrations, while adults like the concept of things being tough, but coming out the other side. Everyone's been through loss.
