"Fox and Bear brilliantly juxtaposes the trade-off between a life that's rich thanks to the simplicity of pastoral existence and one made materially rich by efficiency and accumulation. Themes of sustainability and living in harmony with our natural resources in a circular economy are at play in the story. The book applauds thinking for ourselves and standing up for our convictions. What an inspiring moment it is when Bear finally decides what he really wants is a simple life. At its core, Fox and Bear reminds us to be happy with what we have."
— Quill and Quire Starred Review
"Fox and Bear is a prophetic, fable-like picture book about how craving more can be destructive to happiness as well as to the natural world."
