From endpaper to endpaper this is a visual feast of a book for young readers. The story of Penelope the Fox who loses her heart when her best friend moves away is captivating and touching. Her quest to reclaim her heart takes her on adventures told in beautiful, boldly coloured graphics and minimalist text. With the help of a chicken friend, she succeeds in finding her heart only to save her new friend’s life with her heart’s sacrifice. The chicken presents Penelope with an egg that hatches a new heart, and so a deeper friendship is born – in the age-old death-rebirth archetypal cycle.
