Editorial Review

"The cartoony, snarky graphic novel format of Do You Know Crows? will appeal to many students' sense of humour and, along the way, they will learn dozens of interesting facts about the common crow. . . By the end of the book, students may develop a new respect and appreciation for the crow and just might begin to think differently about other creatures that don't fit into a simple paradigm of what is good, useful and beautiful."
Highly Recommended. ***1 /4
