The Fox and the Star
Winner of the Waterstones Book of the Year 2015.
The story of a fox, who lived in a deep, dense forest. For as long as Fox could remember, his only friend had been Star, who lit the forest paths each night. But then one night Star was not there, and Fox had to face the forest all alone.
The Worm and the BirdDeep below the earth, Worm dreams of having more space. There's not much room down there. Above, Bird waits, through sun and rain and wind. This is a book about searching and hoping, and how the smallest moment can be beautiful.
The Song of The TreeBird loves to sing in the towering tree at the heart of the jungle. It feels like home. When the season changes she must say goodbye, but she isn't ready to let go. As she listens to the other animals, Bird learns to sing a new song.
