This starkly beautiful tale reminds us of the intrinsic relationship between humanity and the natural world. More of a fable than a story, the ink and watercolor illustrations imbue it with equal eloquence. — Jessica Wood

Description


In this memorable and beautifully illustrated story, a ranger comes across a fox caught in a trap. The ranger frees the fox and promises only to tend to its wounds. The fox recovers and remains curiously close to the ranger, and when unexpected twists occur, the fox ends up being the helper. The ranger asks the fox, "Does this make us even?" and almost immediately feels regret - keeping score has no place in friendship. And so the two continue their journey together.

In this second book in the Crow Stories trilogy, Nancy Vo explores themes of friendship and how meaningful bonds form when we can give and receive openly. Vo's stunning, spare illustrations are a delight, and complement the journey of these two nuanced characters toward understanding and companionship.
