"Award winning author Kiran Millwood Hargrave weaves a rich tapestry of interconnecting stories in this clever, dramatic and deeply moving adventure"
A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month November 2023 | Winner of the 2023 Wainwright Prize for Children's Writing on Nature & Conservation
Leila follows the Blue Fox on an extraordinary journey across the Arctic circle. For the Blue Fox the journey is all about her survival. For Leila, the journey is a painful but ultimately triumphant way of finding her mother.
Millwood Hargrave’s spare story telling allows the complications of both human and fox life to be revealed gently but with great truth. The emotional mood of her story is perfectly matched by Tom de Freston’s beautiful and atmospheric illustrations.
