*****5.0 out of 5 stars A gorgeous flight of fancy 17 April 2014
By R M MEYER
Format:Kindle Edition
Anyone as old as me will remember Jonathan Livingstone Seagull flying into their life around 1970. This lovely book, written by Richard Bach, was the first thing I thought of when settling down with Stunt Crow. OK, not the same sort of book at all but its spirit soars in the same way. A bird that wouldn't follow the flock. A pioneer.

My abiding passions in natural history are wildfowl and crows: the former because I used to work for Peter Scott at The Wildfowl Trust, the latter because I did my PhD on the Red-billed chough - Britains rarest breeding crow - and in keeping and breeding this and other wonderful crows like Azure-winged magpies, Hunting green cissas, Red-billed blue magpies and many of our own fantastic corvids, I came to admire the guile and intelligence of the entire crow family. Stunt Crow takes his place in that pantheon with superb style.

David Freedman's writing is precise and elegant. Its economy beautifully matched and adorned by Mike Kelly's monochrome evocative drawings which catch without fuss the life of a crow. A book to be savoured and read aloud, as to my grand-daughter, again and again.

I read Stut Crow to my twins graddaughters last night and they adored the captivating story and dynamic illustrations. I recommend it and love that it takes children into the great outdoors for a nice change of pace, offering an appreciation of wildlife and the environment that factors into their struggles for surviving. Kudos to the author and illustrator. Terrific job!
