The marvelous illustrations of Bagram Ibatouline and the delightful writing of Lois Lowry combine to make this a delightful journey of a father and daughter's re-acquaintance.

When a child, Lowry missed her father who was away from his family and in the service during WWII. When he returned, he resumed loving, caring relationships with his children.

This beautiful picture/story book captures a special moment of quiet joy as father and daughter walked in the autumn woods to hunt crows. The crows were called and circled high above in the trees, but none were shot. All were observed in a magical snapshot of time.

If you enjoy the art of Andrew Wyeth, you will appreciate the artistry of Ibatouline who also illustrated The Miraculous Journey of Edward Toulane.

This is a book to be read, when looking outside at the moon shining on the snowy ground, cup of tea in hand, and a warm cover on your lap
