Book review – Gaspard the Fox

By Zeb Soanes and James Mayhew.

This is an interesting tale about the life of a street fox. It’s wordier than your average picture book  giving it an old fashioned feel which is no bad thing. As such it’s a longer story too. There are interactions with a posh local cat and a scruffy local dog as Gaspard spends the day in search of food. He meets humans too and it’s nice that most of those are friendly encounters. The illustrations also lend to the old fashioned feel and provide a lot a character. A really nicely done sketchy style. It’s clear that a series was planned and I note a new story is out in August, so will be seeing more of Gaspard!
