One of Liz's favorite memories of her father is the day they passed the window of Kronenberg's department store. Daddy had bought her a very special gift something warm and wonderful to remember him by. A gift she would never outgrow. Now Daddy is back from the war, and his gift is perfect, as the two of them set out together on a cold autumn morning-first to town, where they share a special slice of cherry pie, then to the gray-green hills of the Pennsylvania farmlands, where they beckon crows from the quiet sky.

Lois Lowry pairs with acclaimed artist Bagram Ibatoulline to deliver a timeless story about the power of a very special relationship.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Lois Lowry is one of only two children’s authors to ever win two Newbery Medals. Her Giver trilogy (Giver, Messenger and Gathering Blue) is used in school curriculums all over North America. This new story is wonderfully told and amazingly illustrated. The artwork is vivid and realistic, almost a cross between Norman Rockwell and Alex Colville. The story is that of a young girl out for the day with her father, a father she doesn’t really know, for he has just returned from the war. They have gone to hunt crows that are eating the crops. The story is about parents and children getting to know each other. In that sense it is truly universal, which is the best kind of story. Lowry shares in the afterward that this is a true story; it happened to her. This is an amazing book and can be shared with many.
