Fox & Bird

Fox is desperate to gain Bird’s affection, and does everything she orders him to do. But when Bird goes too far and Fox makes a stand, the tables are turned.

Relationships are tested and strengthened in this affirming tale of friendship and self-assurance.

“This striking and sensitively-told story is a wonderful way to broach topics of kindness, empathy and compromise in young children. 

Edwina Wyatt’s pared-back prose is poetic and poignant, while Alice Lindstrom’s rich and sumptuous collage-style illustrations shine with colour and beauty. 

Subtle and stunning, this story of new friendship is a modern-day fable that’s sure to become a much-loved classic.”

– Penny Harrison, Kids’ Book Review
