Here is a book I love.


It is called Jane, the fox & me, written by Fanny Britt, and illustrated by Isabelle Arsenault.


It is beautiful in so many ways. It is visually arresting, first of all. Most of the images are moody, highly textured, almost black and white with lots left to the imagination. 



The words are spare and the voice is accurate--an adolescent girl struggling with changed friendships, a changing body, a fragile self-image. A wonderful book and a loving mother are her anchors.


And, you will see, the story ends well. In full color. Just beautiful.
