When Aput the fox finds an abandoned goose egg, he has no idea what's in store for him. He doesn’t know anything about babies and he certainly doesn’t know what to do when the gosling hatches and mistakes him for its daddy. So he decides to find the gosling a home.


But with each page turn, Aput learns  more about caring for a baby and, with a little help from his friends, he discovers what a baby needs most is love.

Best picture books about dads — BookTrust

"Bonnet's adorable book about being a new parent is full of warmth and reassurance, and the lovely ending reminds us that a loving community is a huge part of a child's life – and a big support for new parents, too.

The arctic animals are drawn incredibly beautifully and with real character, from the yogic polar bear to the busy lemmings, with lots of detail to keep children gazing at the pages."

"The Best New Children’s Books"—The Wall Street Journal

"Engaging story with winsome illustrations."—The Washington Post

"A beautiful story about a nurturing father figure and the importance of love in any new baby’s life. The painted illustrations are wondrous, capturing the colours of the Arctic – and Northern Lights – in all their glory."—Scottish Book Trust

“Perfect for Father’s Day, this sweet tale shows how love makes a family. A great choice for one-on-one and small group sharing.”—School Library Journal


“Aput’s evolution from helpful bystander to committed parent makes for a lovely narrative arc, but even more touching is Bonnet’s (the Ella and Penguin books) portrait of a lively, caring community.”—Publishers Weekly


“The focus is on the developing relationship between father and child; the fox’s expression when the egg hatches is absolutely priceless and worth the cover price alone. A sweet adoption tale.”—Kirkus
