C'era una volta una Volpe che abitava nel profondo di una fitta foresta. Per quel che Volpe poteva ricordare, la sua unica amica era sempre stata Stella, che ogni notte illuminava i sentieri della foresta per lui. Finché una notte Stella non apparve, e Volpe dovette affrontare l'oscurità tutto solo...
Una capolavoro di grafica e illustrazione, una storia sull'amore e la perdita, una parabola che parla di vita e di nostalgia.

This was lovely. Poetry is the most artful form of the written word; it is careful and selective. Each word, each piece of punctuation, each syllable, is weighed carefully to produce an image or sensation to the highest effect. This isn’t poetry, though the same close attention to detail can be seen Leggi tutto
I must confess, I bought Coralie Bickford-Smith's The Fox and the Star purely because it's utterly beautiful. Given the name of this blog, it's probably no surprise.

One of the most beautifully illustrated and designed books I have ever had the pleasure of reading ^_^
The illustrations are absolutely beautiful, wonderful colours and patterns 5 stars for them but I found the storyline really weak I'm afraid.

I love the navy blue background and the cute little fox at the bottom, it just begs to be read and a fine showcase on your bookshelf! The story is worthy of the cover too. It’s about a sweet little fox that loves his star. T Leggi tutto
