After Dog saves Magpie from a fire and nurses her burnt wing, the two forge a powerful bond. The mood changes quickly, however, when Fox enters and sets Magpie on edge.
An arresting picture book that goes to the heart of human relationships. Fox is an archetypal drama about friendship, loyalty, risk and betrayal—it is a story that is as rich for adults as for older children. This book has won acclaim around the world: CBCA Picture Book of the Year; two Premiers' literary awards; honors in Germany, Brazil, and Japan; a shortlisting for the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal in the UK, and more.
