|Orion Children’s Books
***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. The mess and tangle of humanity is so brilliantly contrasted with the wild spirit of nature’ 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. She was very tired. She lay down, her soft head on her soft paws. The sunset licked her face. The snow covered her like a blanket. 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
