Staff Reviews

Fox just wants to play all day, every day but winter is coming! Fox's forest friends can't persuade him to prepare for the long, dark months ahead and suddenly Fox finds himself terribly cold and hungry. Can his forest friends still help? A book about loyalty, friendship and preparedness. — Gail Cosgriff


This cozy picture book about friendship and sharing, with glittering foil on each spread, makes for a perfect holiday gift.

Fox loves to play, but his friends are worried about him. It’s nearly winter, and it’s time he started getting ready! Each animal knows just what Fox should do, if only he would listen to them. When winter finally comes, Fox finds himself cold, hungry, and all alone. Can a wish upon a star help him set things right? This cozy picture book about friendship and sharing, with glittering foil on each spread, makes for a perfect holiday gift.

About the Author

Timothy Knapman is the author of many books for children, including Dinosaurs Don’t Have Bedtimes. In his spare time, he writes plays and musicals, because he believes that onstage, as between the covers of a book, the real and the fantastical can collide, and that is where all great storytelling comes from. Timothy Knapman lives in Surrey, England.

When she used to draw as a child, Rebecca Harry never knew she’d be lucky enough to do it as a job when she grew up. She studied graphic design and illustration and now works in a little studio above her friend’s busy jewelry shop, where she has illustrated many picture books for children. Rebecca Harry lives in Cardiff, Wales, with her two lovely children.

Praise For…

Each soft-focus illustration is embellished with silver foil for maximum sparkle, highlighting birchbark, dead grasses, and snowdrifts. All the animals are so fuzzy and nonthreatening it's easy to imagine this Fox playing with instead of eating his squirrel and rabbit friends...this lightly Christmas-y twist has some charm.
