Fox's Dream by Keizaburo Tejima.
Philomel Books/Putnam Publishing Group: NY, 1987.
Originally published by Fukutake Pub. Co. Ltd.: Tokyo, Japan, 1985.
Based on English translation by Susan Matsui.

Tejima is a woodcut artist, who has used fairy tales and themes of nature for his picture books. This is one of several books by Tejima. All have delightful print work, in color.

This particular story takes place in the winter and follows a lone fox exploring the snowy countryside. The story is simple, yet evokes a deep understanding. The fox is looking for companionship.

I was surprised to see the age of the books. The style and story are ageless.
