Review of Fox by Margaret Wild and Ron Brooks

It is not often that one comes across a book that carries such powerful impact as it narrates a story encompassing elements of friendship, hope, despair, betrayal, loyalty and healing in so few pages. A kaleidoscopic story that changes shape and meaning depending on whether you view it through the lens of a child or that of an adult.
It is a fable that has a moving and dark theme, yet carries a beautiful allure that makes it a compelling read. With its powerful and haunting quality, it can sear itself into the reader’s memory.
The prose inspires vivid imagery in the mind with words left unsaid, while the illustrations speak louder than words.
Have you read this book? What are your thoughts?
