An uplifting, magical book perfect for sharing at bedtime that will leave children feeling warm, cosy and loved.
Freya and her mum have gone to a little cabin to get away for a while. The light has gone out of their lives since Freya's dad passed away. Freya isn't sure about going sledging, but when she meets a magical fox in the snow, she can't help but follow him into the forest - and on to a thrilling adventure.
A heartwarming bedtime story inspired by the Finnish Saami myth of the revontulet, or fox fires - the sparks that fly from the fur of a mystical fox to become the Northern Lights.
The Fire Fox is a gloriously illustrated, beautifully written story about the nurturing light of love that can't be dimmed, written by debut author Alexandra Page and illustrated by the exciting talent Stef Murphy. This enchanting picture book with its touching story of sadness, hope, love and joy begs to be read again and again.
