Product description

Review

'Williamson allows readers to quickly relate to both white Glaswegian Caylin and Syrian-immigrant Reema, seeing in them reflections of the many problems children face around the world today. Her writing is culturally sensitive [...] With her two characters, Williamson movingly makes it clear that working-class solidarity traverses borders, race, ethnicity, and religion.' (Fiction. 10-15)
- Kirkus, Starred Review

'This story is a delightfully nuanced, diverse, thoughtful and even fun/cute story of friendship and learning to be a good person. The ending works with the rest of the feel-good story. Really great for anyone who loves a great story of friendship.'
- Youth Services Book Review, starred review

'An inherently entertaining and compelling read from first page to last, The Fox Girl and the White Gazelle will prove to be an immediate and enduringly popular addition to elementary school and community library General Fiction collections for young readers ages 10 to 12.'
- Midwest Book Review

'Difficult themes (war, death, bigotry, alcoholism, bullying) are treated honestly, in a manner appropriate for the... target age (10-12). It's a moving story told in alternating perspectives.'
- Monika Durbin, Edelweiss

'Relevant, moving and quite extraordinary.'
- Lucy Coates, author of the Beasts of Olympus series

About the Author

Victoria Williamson is a primary school teacher with a Master's degree in special needs education. She has worked as a science teacher and teacher trainer in Cameroon and Malawi, an English as a foreign language teacher in China, and as a special needs teacher in the UK. Victoria's experiences teaching young children in a deprived area, many of whom were asylum seekers, inspired her first novel, The Fox Girl and the White Gazelle, an uplifting tale of friendship between Glasgow girl Caylin and Syrian refugee Reema.
