and the Bird is also a very attractive book, it has some lovely illustrations and is bound in the same beautiful format as Fox It is a nice enough story too, all about finding space and living for the moment.However, there is no escaping that this is a book about a worm A worm wiggling through the earth Obviously this is not such an appealing story as one about a little fox gazing up at the stars Not only is this story all about a worm, but the worm actually comes to a sticky end, when the fabulously ominous crow who features throughout the story carries him off and eats him This one is worth reading for the beautiful illustrations, especially for the, ever patient crow, just not such an easy book to get on with flag Like see review Sep 05, 2017 Jennifer rated it liked it Shelves fiction, read 2017 Another thing of beauty from Coralie Bickford Smith The colours were not, as befits the story, as vibrant as The Fox and the Star but the story, whilst shocking, seemed probably straightforward yet still plenty to make you think I m still not sure these are all ages books, not like the fabulous Two Frogs by Chris Wormall, and although all the insects were gorgeous, I would have liked the head of the worm to be accurate flag Like see review Oct 13, 2017 McLean rated it it was amazing It s Coralie Bickford Smith, so of course this book is gorgeously designed I was expecting that, and it definitely did not disappoint What I was not expecting was a picture book to have a story that left me floored I finished the book and just sat staring at it, trying to process what I d just read I m not sure how well this book would work for kids But for myself, I was deeply impressed flag Like see review Sep 21, 2017 Tim rated it liked it Shelves childrens fiction This is a beautiful children s book but will also give a lot of pleasure to adult readers as well The illustrations are beautiful and perfect for an autumn day It is a message about searching and hope and
