A Fox for All Seasons Journal: With new Reynard the Fox mini stories

SKU: BODS-100442

This handsome hardback journal features ten new mini stories about everyone’s favourite fox, reimagined by Reynard the Fox author Anne Louise Avery. 

Told by Reynard to his three little cubs on a moonlit spring night in the east of Flanders, each of the two-page stories is based on old medieval French vulpine tales, drawn from Marie de France’s version of Aesop, Ysopet, Guillaume Tardif’s Les Apologues et Fables de Laurens Valle and Le Roman de Renart. Some tell of Reynard’s antics, others of the exploits of his noble and mythic ancestors. Foxes tumble into dyer’s vats, steal twists of eels from unsuspecting fisherman, lounge around Black Sea ports and are transformed into eternal and glittering stars. 

With a stylish ribbon marker, foiled spine and high-quality ruled pages, this notebook is a stationery-lover’s delight as well as the perfect gift for fans of Avery’s captivating story-telling and all those entranced by this enduring animal fable.

Anne Louise Avery is a writer and art historian based in Oxford.
