I am as brown as brown can be,
And my eyes as black as sloe;
I am as brisk as brisk can be,
And wild as forest doe.
(The Child Ballads, 295)

So begins a beautiful tale of love, loss and revenge. Following the seasons, A Pocketful of Crows balances youth and age, wisdom and passion and draws on nature and folklore to weave a stunning modern mythology around a nameless wild girl.

Only love could draw her into the world of named, tamed things. And it seems only revenge will be powerful enough to let her escape.

Beautifully illustrated by Bonnie Helen Hawkins, this is a stunning and original modern fairytale.

Review:

"a cozy flight of fancy to curl up with on a chilly night"--Publishers Weekly


This is a beautiful package with lovely illustrations. This book is sure to please readers who love fables and folktales, as well as magic and fantasy. It also would be a great companion piece to early colonial American lit as I found myself thinking of THE CRUCIBLE and other works about the American wilds and the magic that once lived here.
--Jamie Southern, Bookseller,

Book Description:

A perfect autumn and Christmas read, this combines the harshness of nature with the spookiness of a ghost story and the comfort of a great folk tale, in one beautifully told novella which is stunningly illustrated by Bonnie Hawkins.
