Product description

Winner of the 2023 Wainwright Prize for Children’s Writing on Nature & Conservation!

‘A captivating tale that glistens with wonder. Leila and Fox will always have a home in my heart’ Sophie Anderson

‘This is an extraordinary book – wild and beautiful and perfect’ Katya Balen

Come with an Arctic fox on a breathtaking journey … an enthralling story from the bestselling, award-winning creators of Julia and the Shark. With dazzling blue and black illustrations, this is a perfect gift for 9+ fans of The Last Bear and A Wolf Called Wander.

Fox wakes, and begins to walk. She crosses ice and snow, over mountains and across frozen oceans, encountering bears and birds beneath the endless daylight of an Arctic summer, navigating a world that is vast, wild and wondrous.

Meanwhile, Leila embarks on a journey of her own – finding her way to the mother who left her. On a breathtaking journey across the sea, Leila rediscovers herself and the mother she thought she’d lost, with help from a determined little fox.

Based on the true story of an Arctic fox who walked from Norway to Canada in seventy-six days, a distance of two thousand miles, this compelling, emotional and beautifully illustrated story is the perfect gift for 9+ readers.

Praise for Julia and the Shark:

‘A tale of courage, understanding and compassion’ The Observer

‘Julia and the Shark is deep, beautiful and true. The art shines and the writing soars. A classic from cover to cover’ Eoin Colfer

‘A truly beautiful book, with text and illustrations in perfect harmony. A book to treasure!’ Jacqueline Wilson

Kiran Millwood Hargrave is winner of the Wainwright Prize (in Sept 2023), the Waterstones Book Prize, and the British Book Awards Children’s Book of the Year.
