Praise

“Brilliant . . . a delight.”
-Philip Pullman

“What keeps the pages turning is the remarkable illustrations, which shift from spread to spread… It’s a spectacular show of friendship’s power to change and fill lives.”
The Boston Globe

“A beautiful piece of design coupled with thoughtful prose…[a] masterpiece.”
Newsweek
 
“The most physically beautiful book I had the pleasure of holding in my hands in 2015…Really, The Fox and the Star is an art book, a chance for the abundantly talented Bickford-Smith—best-known for designing the crave-worthy Penguin hardcover classics—to create an entire book from scratch. The simple story of a young fox who loses his best friend only to discover a whole new world makes a sweet premise, but the main attraction is Bickford-Smith’s masterful exercise of the book designer’s craft.
—Laura Miller, Slate 

“A delightful surprise for fairy tale lovers of all ages.”
Parade
 
“Book designer Coralie Bickford-Smith has created a volume that’s as close to a work of art as anything mass-produced can be…It’s a quiet allegory made perfect by exquisite, pattern-based illustrations printed on heavy paper. While older children will be mesmerized, The Fox and the Star is for readers of any age who appreciate sophisticated visuals. Grade: A+”
Cleveland Plain Dealer
 
“One of the most beautiful kids books in recent memory.”
St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“An unusual, pleasantly old-fashioned… gorgeous production value and moving illustrations.”
Booklist
