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.
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. —Kirkus Reviews
