The story is delightful and parents get a kick out of introducing this "dark bird" to their children. This book is one in a current series of three. We enjoyed the story and its message. I loved that my daughter and I could talk about where this funny raven originated from. Perfect for Halloween and spending time with your little one doing the most important thing of all...reading.
