Just a little announcement for you guys. :)

Last year i worked together with Manasi Subramaniam from Karadi Tales on an illustrated Children's Book version of the well-known fable tale The Fox And The Crow.

Children's Book The Fox And The Crow by Culpeo-Fox


For those who don't know the story here's a very bief summary:
A Crow steals a piece of bread (it's a Jean Valjean-bird 8D ) from a bakery but comes across a cunning Fox before he can eat it. Fox takes a fancy to the bread and thus comes up with a simple plan to get it out of Crow...

Some details:
28 pages, for readers of age 4 and up, the language is English.
It will be published in March 18, 2014 but you can pre-order it already on Amazon:

Pre-order/Buy The Fox And The Crow On Amazon

Nothing more left to say but looking forward to hear your opinions about it and as always: thank you for the support. :) Also a big thank you to Manasi for the business and great cooperation - it was wonderful to work with you.

Best wishes,
Culpeo

Kann man das dann auch in Deutschland kaufen oder muss man es aus Amerika bestellen?

Nee, im Deutschen Amazon gibt es das genauso. Einfach "culpeo" in der Suchleiste eingeben. 8D (Allerdings ist das im deutschen Amazon noch nicht vorbestellbar.)

Hang on... I don't think it's the same one but I'm remembering a children's book (I think it was just called "Fox") and there was like... Two different animals that were best friends, I'm pretty sure one of them was a bird-type creature and one of them was maybe a dingo? And one was blind and the other couldn't fly so they helped each other survive - and then the fox came along and stuff...? Do you know that story?

You mean "Fox" by Margaret Wild. I once wrote a review about it:

Oh my gosh yes. That's the one. Man, that brings back my childhood days. That book used to make me feel really sad due to the ending. That is some seriously deep stuff right there.
I've always adored foxes since, well, forever, and it really made me upset that the fox character in that book was so.... well, was the "bad character". Because I really hated what the fox did, even though it's in-keeping with the whole "sly" characterisation attributed to foxes. Besides, a lot of fox characters are portrayed as the villains in media. But man, that ending really cuts me deep. It's only now, when much older, and upon reading your review, that I realise why the fox did what it did and understand it all so much better. As a kid I couldn't really comprehend it. But the fox didn't do that because it was purely "bad" and "mean" (as a kid my age at the time would think), but because of its loneliness and jealously. Wow.
Thanks so much for reminding me... It's so cool that you know about that book too. :aww:

On a side-note, I really think there need to be a lot more positive fox characters everywhere in the media. They're the villains way too often. Like, sure they're supposed to be sly but that can be shown in a positive light and it doesn't necessarily have to make them the villain!
