In this timeless Aesop's fable, a fox and a crow vie for a piece of bread. The crow has it, but can the fox get it? This breathtakingly beautiful picture book adapted by Manasi Subramaniam and by Culpeo S. Fox is an exploration of this tale. Each page stands alone like a brilliant painting; when the pages come together, they tell us the story like never before.

Manasi Subramaniam is an award-winning writer of fiction and poetry.

Culpeo S. Fox is an artist from Germany with a unique focus on wildlife and method art.

Review quote

"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."
