The Fire Fox - Children's book

What can change in a single night?
In this modern re-telling of a classic European folktale, a young boy is visited by an enigmatic creature with a beautiful secret.
Together they explore the playfulness,mystery, and danger of nature, before the visitor reveals their true self.
A story of joy and loss, that yearns for the endless freedom of childhood.

Known as revontulet by the Finns, the Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis are a natural wonder that leave us filled with awe and wonder at the mystery of the universe.
The lights have been woven into the folklore of northern dwellers since time immemorial. In Finnish mythology an arctic fox creates the lights by casting snow skywards with the sweeping of its tail. A spectacle made all the more brilliant by moonlight reflected through the snowflakes.
Our tale began life as a tattoo design for a friend, symbolising the connection between a father and his son. Distance, after all, can never keep us apart, if only we maintain the bonds of love and friendship.

The FireFox is based on an original series of linocut prints, created by the artist Nester Prints (Esther Remnant).
The book was then co-authored in collaboration with Mike Gwyther.

Absolutely loved the book and enjoyed reading with my soon to be 8 year old!! Art and writing are both her passion and The Fire Fox was perfect for her! She wrote her own review of the book and you will know why every child should have one of these!

Esther and Mike have both created something wonderful in THE FIRE FOX. Stunning hues of green and blue sparkle throughout this beautiful tale about a boy who lives in the North Pole, and encounters several friends in a journey across a snowy, dreamy landscape. The book made me smile, and it really touched my heart, too. Bravo, you two, bra-vo.

I love her work. I saw some of the prints that were intended for the book about two years ago (when I was up in Nelson) and am absolutely thrilled the book is published!! It is a treasure! Thank you for this beautiful work of art!
