Waterstones Book of the Year

The fox and the star

I was so excited when this book arrived on my desk.  This children's book beat adult books such as The Girl on the Train to win Waterstones Book of the Year.  It's great to see a stunning children's book like this given the respect it deserves.  The story is simple: "Once there was a Fox who lived in a deep, dense forest..he was timid and afraid...Star was Fox's only friend..." One night he wakes up and cannot find Star.  The magic of the deep, dark forest comes alive in this beautiful book that is destined to become a classic.  Borrow The Fox and the Star from our Classroom Resources collection and let me know if you love it as much as I do.
