Fox Went out on a Chilly Night: An Old Song
Written and illustrated by Peter Spier
- 1962 Caldecott Medal Honor Book
With art newly restored and colorized by Peter Spier, a beloved Caldecott Honor Book regains its original glory with this hardcover reissue of Spier’s spirited take on a classic American folk song.
"[Spier's] finely detailed, action-packed New England autumn vistas are almost startlingly beautiful." — The New York Times
Over fifty years after he won a Caldecott Honor for The Fox Went Out on a Chilly Night, legendary illustrator Peter Spier has gone back to this time-honored favorite to paint the half of the book that was originally printed in black and white. In this glowing new vision of Spier’s beloved classic, follow the wily fox as he roams a sleepy New England town in search of a meal, with tones and textures so vivid you can almost hear the crackle of crisp fall leaves and the ripples of the river in the moonlight.
