Foxs Dream

Keizaburo Tejima, Author Philomel Books $14.95 (42p) ISBN 978-0-399-21455-4
Here is another stunning picture book by the creator of Owl Lake. This time readers are transported to a snow-filled landscape where a lone fox prowls, probably in search of food, perhaps in search of something else. The moon casts ice-blue shadows through the silhouettes of trees as a graceful snow hare leaps to safety. Fox's hunt takes him deep into the forest to a magical world of glittering ice creatures, where he sees a family of young foxes frozen among the branches. It's a ghostly vision that tells us he lives a solitary life and longs for companionship and a family of his own. As dawn, approaches, a figure appearsa vixen, whom he joins. A story for family sharing, with an eloquently understated lesson of love. Ages 2-6. (September)
