From the co-author and illustrator of The Lost Spells, and The Lost Words--single animal focused meditations in accordion form.
An Accordion Book doesn't open, it unfolds. One side is filled with beautiful watercolour images of an animal: sometimes in motion, sometimes at rest. The other is filled with text - poems, descriptions, invocations - inspired by the same animal.
Together they work as spells to summon the animal's spirit. Jackie Morris has painted them using antique watercolours, some from boxes which hadn't been opened for over 150 years, woken from their slumber with a single drop of water.
Fox and Otter are the first two limited edition "accordions" in a series that will go on to include Hare, Owl, Hound and Cat among many others.
