Fox's Garden: 02/05/16

Fox's Garden by Princesse Camcam

Fox's Garden by Princesse Camcam is a wordless picture book about a fox seeking refuge for herself and her kits during a snow storm. She finds a safe and warm place in a greenhouse.

Artist Princess Camcam uses paper cutouts arranged in tableaux. Only the fox, her kits, and the boy who helps are treated with color. The rest are done in pencil, bringing the focus on the characters. Photographs of the scenes are available on the author's tumblr.

The fox and her kits

It's an absolutely charming book that struck a chord with my daughter and me. We live near an animal rescue organization and they recently took in a red fox. She was confiscated as an illegal pet and can't be released in the wild (California only has gray foxes). So interest in foxes sparked by her arrival prompted us to read Fox's Garden
