'This is the perfect book for talking to children about death' - The GuardianIn the frost-covered forest of early spring, fox is on a mission to find food for her three cubs.

As they grow, she teaches them how to survive in the wild.

Until one day, fox dies. Her body goes back to earth and grass and air, nourishing the world around her and bringing the forest to life.

Death is not just an end, it's also a beginning. Fox: A Circle of Life Story answers the big scientific question: What happens when we die? Bringing together an evocative non-fiction narrative with breath-taking illustrations, this book will help parents and children to talk about life and death.

It introduces the scientific concept that death leads to new life, and that this way of understanding the world is no less beautiful and awe-inspiring than traditional stories. Fox: A Circle of Life Story unites story and science to explain this big concept to children who have lost a pet or a loved one, or who simply are curious about death and what happens after we die. PRAISE FOR MOTH: AN EVOLUTION STORY'A rare pleasure ... a true story of adaptation and hope.' - Wall Street Journal'Moth ... is a stunning visual experience.' - Books for Keeps'Moth ... is another picture book with inbuilt growing room, an introduction to the concept of evolution in language both scientific and poetic, full of thrill and peril.' - Times Literary Supplement
