Reviewed by Kristen Van Kampen for
The Crows of Ticklewick by Phaishonne Danzie is a charming story about a family of crows. The family consists of the parents, and two young crows named Toolie and Forteist. The father is concerned that they may not survive the big freeze, and they have eggs ready to hatch. Toolie tells her brother that they should help the family by gathering food, or else they may starve. But then, Toolie takes food from some baby foxes, and laws are broken. The foxes' dad goes to the nest and says he wants their eggs in return for the food Toolie stole. Will they ever get the fox away from the newly hatched eggs?
