Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this timeless Aesop's fable, a fox and a crow vie for a piece of bread. The crow has it, but can the fox get it? This breathtakingly beautiful picture book adapted by Manasi Subramaniam and by Culpeo S. Fox is an exploration of this tale. Each page stands alone like a brilliant painting; when the pages come together, they tell us the story like never before.

Manasi Subramaniam is an award-winning writer of fiction and poetry.

Culpeo S. Fox is an artist from Germany with a unique focus on wildlife and method art.

Review:

"Illustrator Fox's spreads threaten to burst from the pages with swirling paint strokes, smoldering hues, and animal faces that look close enough to touch. Subramaniam (Dancing Bear) spins Aesop's tale in prose that's close to poetry. The first sentence lands right in the middle of the action: 'When dusk falls, they arrive, raucous, clamping their feet on the wires in a many-pronged attack. As Crow makes to join them, a wafting scent gives him pause.' Big outstretched crow wings spread across two pages, the fragrant bakery visible below. The crow snatches a loaf of bread, and a crow's-eye view shows the baker on the ground shaking his fist. The confrontation between fox and crow unfolds step by tense step. Horizontal spreads alternate with vertical; in one, 'Fox raises her neck and howls. Oh, she's a temptress, that one.' Crow opens his mouth to sing in return ('A song is an invitation'), dropping the precious bread. The excitement is all visual, and the sense of threat not inconsiderable. Who knew Aesop's fables held this much drama? Ages 4 — up." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

Exquisitely beautiful paintings and spares, poetic text bring Aesop's fable to life like never before.
