Vulpes Libris

A collective of bibliophiles talking about books. Book Fox (vulpes libris): small bibliovorous mammal of overactive imagination and uncommonly large bookshop expenses. Habitat: anywhere the rustle of pages can be heard.

Coming up on Vulpes Libris

FoxoniceThe Bookfoxes will soon be winding down for Christmas, but before we go off rummaging in Christmas dustbins for literary scraps, we have two more weeks of book reviews. I should probably also mention here that as of next year, I will no longer be reviewing adult books for Vulpes Libris  and will instead be concentrating on children’s books. I’m very excited about this change of direction and look forward to talking about the very best books on the market aimed at the under-tens.

Monday: Jackie has mini-reviews of her favorite books of the last half of 2012.

Wednesday: Moira is delighted to catch up with the latest adventures of Hattori Hachi in Jane Prowse’s Curse of the Diamond Daggers.

Thursday: Telepathically channelling Jackie, Lisa is also back with a series of mini-reviews of the most interesting books she read in 2012.

Friday: Three years after we first chatted with her, we catch up with Jane Prowse, who has quite a tale to tell about how the third Hattori Hachi novel finally made it into print.

    That’s a beautiful photo, I love the colors. Took me a few minutes to find the teeny tiny fox. 😉

    If you click on the pic and load up the highest res image on Flickr you can see much more of the fox. It’s a beauty.
