"Crows! Strange and Wonderful"
Written by Laurence Pringle
Illustrated by Bob Marstall
Although as a highly successful species, crows can be real pests they are also fascinating and highly intelligent animals. This brisk, well-written picturebook offers a quick look at crows and their culture and makes good nonfiction reading for kids and adults alike. In a few short pages, I learned several things about crows that I didn't already know, such as their ability to mimic human speech and their social nesting patterns, where juvenile crows will help parents hatch and raise a new generation of chicks. Who knew, right? This is a strong, straightforward book with mid-level text that is not overly dense and still simple enough for most young readers to get a lot out of. Recommended! (DJ Joe Sixpack, ReadThatAgain children's book reviews)
The drawings are excellent and are just the thing to make the book attractive to youngsters. It contains just enough prose to be informational but at the same time not off-putting. There exist several fine, "grown-up" books on the subject of the bird family corvidae, one such member being the crow. This book <Crows, Strange and Wonderful> seems to be to be just the thing that might cause a young person to want to read the more authoritative books eventually.
I had hoped that it would be such a book that I could give as a gift to a child. It turned out to be just that and I am pleased. The author and illustrator turned out a fine product that I am happy to recommend.
