Thank you, Brremaud, Bertolucci and NetGalley for giving me an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Synopsis mk3

“Visually lavish and unforgettable.” – Kirkus Second in the celebrated series of wildlife image (2)graphic novels, author Frederic Brremaud and illustrator Federico Bertolucci turn their lens on a northeastern woodland setting to follow a single fox through its daily journey through the trees and along the seafront. Only this is not just another day — a spectacular volcanic eruption throws the area into chaos, sending creatures of all kinds scurrying for safety. But the intrepid little fox surprising decides to run into the danger instead of away! What could send this tiny hunter towards the danger? This all-ages title will appeal to children and adults for its breathtaking illustration and gripping adventure drama.

My Thoughts mk3

Wow! Simply stunning. I was mesmerised watching this little fox as seemly the world was ending around it.

A volcano is irrupting and all the animals are going berserk. Most of the animals are trying to escape the volcano, while some use the fleeing herds to their advantage for an easy meal. The little fox is all the time battling its way towards the volcano. And I was thinking, what is he doing? Well the little fox I assumed was male, is female and she was on a mission to save her pup, awwww. Of course she manages to save her pup and it’s beautiful.

Not one word of text is used to tell the story. But the detailed and dramatic illustrations over the eighty pages tells us the story perfectly. Five Stars. I NEED to get myself a hardback copy of this. Go mummy fox go!

  1. Looks like a gorgeous book. Thank goodness the baby fox is saved. There’s a famous Aussie picture book of old (out of print now) called “Death of a Wombat” which features a similar storyline except with a bush fire – except all the animals die horribly. And an aunt bought it for my sister for her birthday. Her BIRTHDAY! Honestly, it’s scarred me for life.

    • Oh dear, trying to teaching the kids the brutal truth of the world a bit too early.
      I guess that is a more realistic end. This book was was beautiful and dare I say probably more appropriate for a little girls birthday. I’m going to have to see if a can track down someone with a copy of Death of a Wombat so I can have a look :-).
