About 'A new home for Fox'

Fox had to flee from intruders in his forest. Luckely Fox was able to escape.

Still out of breath, Fox knocks on a door for help in a strange forest. Would the resident be willing to help?

A moving story about trusting the unknown and making new friends.


Age: 5+


Story behind the story

Just imagine if you're in trouble and the people you ask for help judge you on prejudices only.

It's like you have to prove over and over again that you are a good person. This concept sparked the idea to write a picture book about how it could feel if you're turned down just because of that.


About the illustrator

Agnes Ofner is an author and illustrator, based in Vienna. She grew up in a small village in the South of Austria. There she roamed through the forests, stayed up late to read books and thought up stories. Later she moved to Vienna to study languages and graphic design to pursue her goal of creating books for a living. Agnes has since worked with different publishers. Her first novel „Nicht so das Bilderbuchmädchen“ won the Austrian Young Adult Literature prize. She dreams of one day having a dog (soon!) and moving to the sea (maybe not so soon). Coincidentally foxes are her all time favorite animal.
