"An island is a ship in constant battle with the elements. Where can its inhabitants go when the ship begins to sink? It's not easy being one of the smaller predators in the woods, competing with an entire woodland population for scraps along the food chain.

Read 18 January 2016: Highly recommended for all ages. But in a bit of social responsibility I will quote the ratings sticker: “This book contains depictions of violence and survival within nature. It is intended for ALL AGES.” So perhaps if you don’t want to explain a pod of killer whales attacking a baby whale and its mother to your young child or grandchild then wait a couple years. They may well miss some of that anyway. They won’t miss the two bears fighting though. Or the ….

It says it was written by Brrémaud and illustrated by Bertolucci. I guess they mean storyboarded or such as there is no story in the strong sense and there are no words, except for an epigraph and epilogue. But it is full of amazingly gorgeous illustrations of assorted animals and their varied habitats. There is conflict, terror, natural disaster, violence and the turning away of violence. And there is love.

The illustrations pay dividends by spending time with them. Even so, it is can be a fairly quick read by oneself. With a child on one’s lap or by your side it could take hours. That would be a grand thing; but only if you are prepared to explain some of the natural world to your young charge.

Highly recommended. One of the most beautiful looking books I have read in a long.

Excellent graphic novel! The Fox was an amazing graphic novel with a deep story and mesmerizing illustrations. It is a story about a fox trying to survive. Amidst the chaos of hunting and being hunted, the fox has to find safety from an exploding volcano. Other animals are doing the same, surviving the chaos the best they can. The Fox is a beautifully illustrated wordless graphic novel, captivating and magnificent. I definitely recommend reading it. It is like reading a National Geographic magazine.
