WATERSTONES BOOK OF THE YEAR
The Waterstones Book of The Year is unique in that nominations for the award are chosen solely by Waterstones booksellers.
Every year, our booksellers nominate the book that caught their imagination more than any other, the one they believe truly stands out, in any genre; essentially, the one they believe will charm those who love reading and love books.
THE FOX AND THE STAR IS THE 2015 WINNER!
The Fox and The Star is a delightful book that will not just be a cherished bedtime story for children, it is a beautifully illustrated modern fable readers of all ages will admire.
It tells the touching story of Fox who loses his friend Star and must venture out into the forest alone and deals with themes of companionship, loss and coming-of-age. Each elegant and stunning page has been thoughtfully created in orange, black and white by designer Coralie Bickford-Smith, whose vibrant style is influenced by the work of William Morris and William Blake.
“This year a book has won our Book of the Year accolade through the impassioned advocacy of our outstanding children’s booksellers.” James Daunt, Waterstones Managing Director, said.
“The Fox and the Star is a book of great physical beauty and timeless quality, one that will surely join that very special group of classic tales that appeal equally to children and adults.”
“It’s a charming, otherworldly sort of tale with hints of magic.”
Isabel Popple – Waterstones Piccadilly
“This book is a work of art … that deserves a place on every book lover’s bookshelf.”
Charley Brammar – Waterstones Manchester Deansgate
