The illustrations are amazing. The creator has done cover designs at Penguin Books, but this is her first book as author/illustrator. You can see the strong sense of graphic design in the pages. There are pages full of brambles and thorns or tall straight trees that Fox must wander through on his search for Star. One spread focuses on Fox's eyes and you can see Star reflected in them. One of my favorites is the scene looking up through the trees and all the leaves to see Star shining in the space between the branches.
Both the text and the illustrations are suited for readers of all ages, and everyone will find something personally meaningful in reading it.
