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

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,

Link to a basically identical Journal :P --->…

Ganz plattblöd und dummspontan gefragt: Werden du (und/oder Frau Subramaniam) buchbedingt eigentlich auf der Messe unterwegs sein?

(Zum Buch - da muss ich mir mal Zeit nehmen. Ich hatte es tatsächlich schon in der Hand und ward tief und nachhaltig beeindruckt. Was für ein großartiges "Debüt". Dunkel, wunderbar, einzigartig (wie prophezeit ; )). Mein Lieblingsbild war das letzte - an old hunger aches.)
Culpeo-Fox Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2014  Professional General Artist
Ja, ich werde am Samstag auf der Messe unterwegs sein. Allerdings nicht mit Manasi (die hat den Verlag letztes Jahr aus freien Stücken verlassen und arbeitet jetzt woanders) - sondern mit Pexi. :) (a.k.a "ein Traum wird wahr"). Ein Agentengespräch mit dem indischen Verlag wird es trotzdem wieder geben, da wurde schon alles durchgeplant.

Solltest du bereits am Donnerstag dort sein, empfehle ich dir die White Raven Präsentation - das Fox and Crow-Buch ist unter den 200 ausgewählten Titeln:…

(ich selbst kann da leider nicht dran teilnehmen, da Uni und so. Den Stand checken Pexi und ich dann am Samstag.)

Wäre mein Englisch nicht so derp, ich würde auch eine Rezension schreiben. Ich werds versuchen.

"Aesop noir" ist noch eine Untertreibung.
Was für ein hypnotisierendes Meisterwerk. Ach.

Besteht eigentlich die Chance, dass es auch ins Deutsche übersetzt wird?
Culpeo-Fox Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2014  Professional General Artist
Aber Spotz. Spotzschotz.

Donke. :iconblackheartplz:

Im deutschen Amazon ist es auch vertreten, allerdings habe ich keine Ahnung, ob da jemals eine deutsche Übersetzung existieren wird. Ich weiß auch nicht, nach welchen Kriterien sich so etwas richtet (Verkaufszahlen, etc.). Jüngst wurde es ja in dieser special AFCC-Singapur-Children's book-ausstellung ausgewählt und mit anderen Sachen veröffentlicht ( - ich hab das übrigens nicht da angemeldet/hochgeladen/whatever, das war der indische Verlag),von daher, mal sehen, was da noch so folgt.

Thank you so much for the support! :heart:
MartiSilent Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2014  Student Filmographer
Just wanted to chime back in for a moment to say a thing. I received the book finally! (Quite a while ago actually, but ssshhh.) And might I just say that I absolutely adore it. I've read it a good number of times now and every time I find myself appreciating the artwork inside making it take a lot longer to read but eh. Worth it. But yeh, just wanted to drop by and say thanks for making such great art as I thoroughly enjoy seeing it appear in my inbox and now on my bookshelf. :wave:
Culpeo-Fox Featured By Owner May 26, 2014  Professional General Artist
Late reply is late but thank you so much for your words! I'm glad you enjoy the book. :)

You can leave a review on Amazon, etc. if you want - that would not also help other customers but me as well. :)
Have fun with the book anyhow and best wishes!

I know this story! The fox says aloud: 

"This bird should be the queen of the birds, if only her voice matched her beauty..." 
And then the crow lets out a caw and drops the food...

Cool :)
