Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1—Subramaniam's adaptation of this Aesop tale is poetic ("When dusk falls, they arrive, raucous, clamping their feet on the wires in a many-pronged attack."). Crow steals a loaf of bread from a baker and flies up into a tree to eat it. But before he can take his first bite, the appearance of a red fox catches his eye ("Their eyes meet, a challenge is spoken."). Fox tricks the crow into singing a song, and the bread falls from his beak into the fox's mouth, leaving the crow with hurt feelings and an empty stomach. Rendered with a dark palette, the full-page illustrations include beautiful close-up paintings of the fox, the crow, and a few other nocturnal creatures, including an owl. The forest at night is shadowy and dim, but the full moon illuminates the drama happening among the tall trees. Although there is no back material about the original story, this version would be a welcome addition to folktale collections.—Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library, AB, Canada

Review

“Aesop noir—gorgeous.”—Kirkus Reviews

"We need folktales in our collections that shake things up a bit. That aren’t afraid to get original with the source material. That aren’t afraid to get, quite frankly, beautiful on us. The pairing of Subramaniam and Fox is inspired and the book a lush treat. An Aesop necessity. Aesop done right." - Elizabeth Bird SLJ Blog

" The excitement is all visual, and the sense of threat not inconsiderable. Who knew Aesop’s fables held this much drama?" - Publishers Weekly

"This sophisticated but knotty story is therefore probably best suited for reading alone and enhancement with some adult context, but the chilly atmosphere, moral ambiguity, and bleak honesty may give readers a taste of what makes such fables timeless" - The Bulletin of The Center for Children’s Books

It is a White Raven 2014.

Honorable mention in the list of "Best Picturebooks of 2014" by Huffington Post.

""With beautiful artwork, intelligent phraseology, and a versatile layout, The Fox and the Crow invites children to fall in love with a book as a sensory object, and is a good choice for any parent hoping to foster an interest in reading in their child." Portland Book Review
