"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."--

It's a beautiful book, if somewhat unusual.

A mesmerizing book in which illustrations and text work simultaneously to tell a beautiful tale. You'll want to read this one again and again.

The story in this book is sweet but very simple. My four star rating is for the physical appeal of the book. It has a gorgeous cloth bound cover, beautiful thick pages and very pretty illustrations that are unique and interesting. It is simply a thing of beauty.
