Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Written in 1944 by Aldous Huxley as a Christmas gift for his niece, The Crows of Pearblossom tells the story of Mr. and Mrs. Crow, who live in a cottonwood tree. The hungry Rattlesnake that lives at the bottom of the tree has a nasty habit of stealing Mrs. Crow's eggs before they can hatch, so Mr. Crow and his wise friend, Old Man Owl, devise a sneaky plan to trick him.and#160;

This funny story of cleverness triumphing over greed, similar in tone and wit to the work of A. A. Milne, shows a new side of a great writer. Paired with stunning illustrations by Sophie Blackall, this timeless tale is sure to grab the attention of many readersand#8212;adults and children alike.

Praise for The Crows of Pearblossom

and#8220;Huxleyand#8217;s story starts good and grimand#8212;just the thing to hold a young audience.and#8221; and#8211;Kirkus Reviewsand#160;

and#8220;A rather charming childrenand#8217;s book. The story is clever, wittily told and bristles with spiky humor and#8212; and it could quite possibly become a new favorite among schoolchildren. In the reissued edition, Brooklyn-based illustrator Sophie Blackwell transforms the chapter book into a picture book. Huxleyand#8217;s standing as one of the grandfathers of dystopian Y.A. is already established. Perhaps the next generation will think of him as that guy who wrote about crowsand#8217; eggs.and#8221; and#8211;New York Times ARTSBEAT blog

This is the CUTEST book ever! My husband's famous version of THE THREE PIGS has been a favorite of our grandchildren until this version came along. It was perfect, especially since we live in Arizona. We LOVE the Southwestern twist on this famous children's story.

I went right out and bought another book by the same author and illustrator. WONDERFUL!
