The Fox and the Star

The Fox and the Star

There are books that tell a story in hundreds of pages and then there are books that only need few words and beautiful illustrations to make for an unforgettable tale.
I knew I wanted this book, from the moment I first saw the video Coralie Bickford-Smith on The Fox and the Star, sometime back in 2015. The video presented the process behind the design and creation of this story. I was intrigued by this book, because the author is in fact a cover designer at Penguin, who has done a lot of the covers we all know and love, for the past 15 years.
I think that when someone finally gets the chance and the freedom to create a book they have always dreamed of, you know that it is going to be a book to remember.
Although it is more of a children’s tale, The Fox and the Star by Coralie Bickford-Smith is a spectacular beautiful book in and out. You know I am a sucker for great illustrations and I truly believe that most of the times an image is worth a thousand words. And please let’s not forget the obvious: it is a story about a Fox and a Star – and we all know that means gold by my standards.
