Jane, The Fox And Me

Jane the Fox and Me Book Cover Adolescent Helene has been ostracized by girls who had once been her friends.  They scribble insults on the school walls and snicker about her on the bus.  Her escape is Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre. When she goes on a camping trip with her class, she discovers an amazing red fox and a new friend, Geraldine.  The mixed-media illustrations alternate between Helene’s sad, black-and-white world and Jane Eyre’s bold colorful English countryside.  Helene’s world changes as she learns that she is worthy of friendship. mjw
