Daniel Pinkwater on Crows

As The Crow Flies by Sheila Keenan and Kevin Duggan

Our children’s book authority Daniel Pinkwater looked to his favorite fowl for this month’s picture book recommendations.  His own affections for the ubiquitous birds led him to a classic crow picture book from the ’50s — Taro Yashima’s Crow Boy— and a contemporary book about crows that reveals that, yes, crows do like road kill, called As The Crow Flies by Sheila Kennan and Kevin Duggan.
