Reviews

Two of George's three children are listed as collaborators on the Newbery Medalist's final picture-book text; together they find the perfect balance of warmth and information. Minor's lovely illustrations use a slightly subdued palette, giving the bird plenty of personality. Sweet story of nature and nurturing.--Kirkus Reviews
Penned by late Newbery Medalist Jean Craighead George and adapted by her children, this picture book follows the family's real experience of rescuing and raising a baby crow foundling they named Crowbar, seamlessly incorporating facts about crows. Minor's art, done in graphite and gouache and enhanced digitally, offers realistic, meticulous snapshots of the crow and family, forming a tender interspecies familial portrait. Back matter includes more about crows, with a list of additional resources. --Publishers Weekly
