Summary
<p> I am as brown as brown can be, <br> And my eyes as black as sloe; <br> I am as brisk as brisk can be, <br> And wild as forest doe. <br> (The Child Ballads, 295)</p> <p>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.</p> <p>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.</p> <p>Beautifully illustrated by Bonnie Helen Hawkins, this is a stunning and original modern fairytale.</p>
