Product Details


Foxes and snow are a picture-book staple, but this one is different: It’s both winter-cozy and a realistic hunting story. “Hunger draws you like a bow,” the book’s narrator says to the little fox. “You must hunt!” A white hare — “no match for a fleet-footed fox” — soon fills his belly. Miyares, whose watercolor art is as stunning as always, shows a bit of red staining the stream as the fox takes a cold drink of water after his meal.
—The New York Times Book Review

The fox exudes dignity and complexity, with the agile animal breaking the frame of an action-packed hunting page but also presenting as tiny and imperiled when pursued…words and art effectively convey the fox’s fluctuating role in the forest ecosystem. An ideal introduction to nature’s complexities, wrapped up in an unexpectedly poetic package.
—Kirkus Reviews

London energetically conveys an animal’s primal concerns, while Miyares’s rough strokes and bold washes emphasize a winter forest’s web-of-life realities and stark beauty.
—Publishers Weekly

Lyrical language with subtle rhymes creates an easy-to-read nature tale about a small creature surviving in a vast winter landscape.

Miyares uses watercolor and ink to bring the story to life using simple yet powerful images…This would be an excellent book to use in a school library to pair with nonfiction books on foxes or the study of habitats.
—School Library Connection

Miyares’s gorgeous ink-and-watercolor illustrations match the text word for word, providing a beautiful complement to the descriptions given. ­A compelling look at predators and prey and the stark realities of life in the wild. Recommended for collections looking for realistic winter-themed tales.
—School Library Journal

…a picture book that captures the crisp loveliness of winter in the forest.
—The Wall Street Journal
