Waterstones Says

A vibrant, adorable picture book that was read by Stephen Fry for Save the Children, A Fox Called Herbert is a cautionary tale about embracing your true self told through bold illustration and enchanting text.

Shortlisted for the Jhalak Children’s & Young Adult Prize 2021

As read by Stephen Fry for Save the Children's #SaveWithStories Campaign

Meet Herbert: the rabbit who knows he was born to be a fox. When his mummy isn't looking, he puts on pointy fox ears, makes himself a bushy tail, and asks his sister to paint him orange, just like a fox. But Mummy doesn't understand: why can't he just be a good rabbit?

A Fox Called Herbert is a true celebration of being ourselves and supporting our loved ones. Let this joyful tale inspire you to be who you are and follow your dreams.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'[Margaret Sturton is] most definitely a talent to watch with interest.' - Books for Keeps 

'This is a charming picture book about identity and acceptance. The colourful illustrations are full of warmth, personality and gentle humour, adding another layer of depth to the tale ... The expressions and body language of the characters enable readers to recognise a range of different emotions, which should help them to develop skills of empathy and emotional awareness.' - BookTrust

'Margaret Sturton announces herself as a major picture book talent with her debut... a wonderful story about identity and love, delivered lightly but most effectively.' - Andrea Reece, LoveReading4Kids
