Here's a few of the comments that came back from those who bought the book.
'Sophia and I are loving Freddie Fox for our bedtime story... tonight Sophia said 'Mummy I like this one, I want to read it forever'
'A beautifully illustrated children's book of both contemporary and timeless values. A book for all children...'
'An evocative and wonderful tale about Freddie Fox which both my boys (age 3 and 5) continue to be enthralled by.'
'I bought the book before a family meal and ended up showing the whole family. We all sat round the dining table passing it between each other, in awe of the colourful, stunning illustrations and the charming story. Freddie Fox is something which can be appreciated and enjoyed by young and old alike - just ask my grandma!'
'I wanted to share my appreciation for your work and of course pass on my children's immediate love of it. They have gobbled up the Freddie Fox book three times today, like the best candy ever. Stella read it to Simon in bed to hush him off to sleep. Stella's blown away by your illustrations and has picked all of her favourite details (the gesture and stance of the butcher's hand, and the close up of the shoe in the urban scene being among her faves) We were all tickled by the rolling lilt of the words that matched the paintings so well.'
'Freddie fox is a wonderful, heart opening story. The fast paced twists and turns take us on a journey of awe and wonder; one minute rollicking in the bounty of the countryside and the next skulking around the gritty city of London rooting for Freddie's survival. Beautifully written and fabulously illustrated. I loved it as much as my 4 year old. Samira Harris is a genius!'
'A masterwork of brilliant artistry and the most beautiful storytelling, that came to life through heartfelt dedication. This is a great book.'
Freddie Fox is a beautifully crafted labour of Love. An adventure of thrills, and surprises, hopes and fears, fun and scrapes, weaving a message of Love and connection with characters who really come to life!'
'My three year old son wanted to read this every night.'
'Freddie Fox is utterly adorable and now I wish I'd asked you to dedicated the copy I bought yesterday to me as I am going to have to keep it and buy another one for Aiden! I think it should be billed as a story for children from 2 - 102! Huge congratulations.'
'Ave loves the book, thanks!' Sally King
'It looks and reads wonderfully, so funny too! I absolutely love it! Well done you!'
'I just thought I'ld let you know that my 4 yr old daughter thoroughly loved your performance at the GIVE festival! She even saw your photo on another flying for a different festival and cut it out saying we must send it to you! So Well Done - it was an amazing performance!!!'
'Freddie fox will bring anyone short tall big or small great happiness! The best illustrated and written book of its kind I have read!'
'Freddie Fox is for children of all ages! Everyone should have a copy!'
"A remarkable fox tale that explores the issues of class, persecution, adventure, bravery and love, dressed beautifully with illustrations by the author, that really is for everyone. A true gem amongst precious stones."
'Maybe I am biased because I love foxes, but this book must be one of my favourite pieces of children’s fiction. It has everything. We are taken on a journey full of wonder with many exciting twists in the tale. Each page is a dazzling feast for the eyes and there is always more to discover on a future reading. It is both fun and educational, and the rhymed storyline keeps a perfect pace. What’s more, children and adults love it.'
'Such a wonderful creation full of colour and adventure! Everyone should have a read!'
'I love this book!'
'A wonderfully illustrated, exhilarating children's book filled with magic and meaning that all can take something from.'
'The labour of love and imaginative brainchild of an artist captured by the zeitgeist and passionate about her work. Freddie Fox will continue to go from strength to strength as he leaps from Harris' imagination via spoken word and bounds across the page in colourful exuberance. Animation will only serve to breathe more life and energy into a wonderful creature that really deserves a full and happy life. Art with style, panache and meaning that will enchant children and adults alike and captures the magic of a brilliant creative mind.'
'A beautiful contemporary classic which children (and adults) will enjoy for years to come.'
'My 4yr old continues to be fully charged with the Freddie fox tale, so much so that her dedication to a princess birthday was surpassed by a fox theme. Exhilarating illustrations and story, I highly recommend.' Janee Swan
'It looks and reads wonderfully, so funny too! I absolutely love it!'
