The White Fox
Publisher: Conkers/Barrington Stoke
Sol is a loner, living with just his dad now that his mum has passed away. But one day, Sol's dad comes home from the Seattle docks with a story about a lone white Arctic fox, spotted among the cargo. Sol is determined to find the fox, and when he does, make it his friend. But when the fox is captured, Sol persuades his father to take him and it north, back to see the grandparents he hardly knows.
A wonderful story about family and belonging, The White Fox is also a magical book about our spiritual connection to animals and nature, enhanced by Jackie Morris's beautiful paintings. Printed on Barrington Stoke's thick cream paper and with a super readable font, this is also a great read for parents and children who may have visual issues decoding or accessing text.
