In honour of the 20th anniversary of The Sandman, this new hardcover collects the 4-issue comics adaptation of Neil Gaiman's original illustrated prose novella of the same name (originally itself a 10th anniversary special for the Sandman), with spectacular artwork by Gaiman’s frequent collaborator P. Craig Russell (the Sandman, Fables: the Last Castle).
A humble young monk and a magical, shape-changing fox find themselves romantically drawn together. As their love blooms, the fox learns of a devilish plot by a group of demons and a Japanese emperor to steal the monk's life. With the aid of Morpheus, the fox must use all of her cunning and creative thinking to foil this evil scheme and save the man that she loves. A beautiful little tale.
