A Pocketful of Crows : A modern fairytale novella from the Sunday Times top-ten bestselling author Hardback

Hardback

Description

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