A 2015 USBBY Outstanding International Book
"Have you ever read a picture book multiple times, enjoying it with each and every read, and then find later that it was wordless . . . and you didn't even notice? Now THAT is the mark of an effective title . . . You could easily see this book adapted into a ballet or similar wordless format. It's a naturally beautiful tale . . . Let's examine that word for a second. Beautiful. I don't use it enough when I'm describing picture books. It's not the kind of word you should bandy about for no reason. If I called every other book "beautiful" it would diminish the importance of the word and I couldn't use it when something as truly stunning as this. It's the kind of book that doesn't feel like anything else you've seen or read. True and lovely and entirely unique. A book to borrow and a book to own."--Elizabeth Bird, Fuse8, School Library Journal

★"Flowing lines and subtle shifts of hue add visual grace notes to this wordless tale of gifts exchanged between a boy and a fox."--STARRED REVIEW, Kirkus Reviews

★"Camcam creates her images by assembling cut-paper dioramas, which are then lit and photographed. The resulting images possess a subtle dimensionality while the story exudes a haunting winter magic and a strong sense of the way a small kindness can make an enormous difference."--STARRED REVIEW, Publishers Weekly

"A gentle reminder that life can be a cold wasteland of cruelty or a whimsical wonderland of grace, depending on the generosity of spirit with which we approach it."--Brain Pickings

"The Fox's Garden has surprises throughout the story that hold the reader's attention. This kind of detail is an ideal mentor to help draw out more style and voice from young writers."--Two Writing Teachers

"The gorgeous cut-paper images are infused with light and then photographed, and help to show true compassion in this story of generosity and heart. "--Sal's Fiction Addiction

"This is a powerful little book. A wordless book. A book made of cut paper that comes to life. A book that will stay with you as it did with me." -- This Picture Book Life

"Employing an unusual technique in telling her story, she cuts out her detailed drawings and then carefully photographs them. By doing so, she produces a wintry tale spiced with the warmth of goodwill."--New York Journal of Books

"This is a haunting picture book, done with an immense delicacy and skill. Simply beautiful."--Waking Brain Cells

"Fox's Garden teaches children to put themselves in another individual's place--whether human or animal--to experience life in ways new to them. It inspires readers to demonstrate compassion by doing kind deeds, expecting nothing in return; the joy is in the giving."--Smart Books for Smart Kids
