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


This week on Vulpes Libris is jam-packed with delicious books. We’re six years old now, so we’ve put on our least leaky walking shoes, our warmest winter coats and trekked all the way to our local libraries and book stores and come back with some gems.

Monday: Jackie learns about finding food in the urban wilderness in Dandelion Hunter by Rebecca Lerner.

Tuesday: Eve has a review of Heroic by Phil Earle.

Wednesday: Lisa is back with a short review of something brilliant. She is, at present, torn between two brilliant things, but she promises she will decide which one of them to write about by Tuesday at the very latest.

Thursday: Kirsty D makes her first foray into children’s books with Pip and Posy’s Bedtime Frog by Axel Scheffler.

Friday: Leena quite enjoys The Shipwreck by Sarah Harriet Burney, Frances Burney’s half-sister.

    It does. And it has bed-head hair, too. What a cutie.
