A new children's book written by David Freedman (Mill Forge) has just been published this month and is available from Amazon Bookstore. at £5.99.
Stunt Crow is the story of one crow, on one day. A literal bird's eye view of avian acrobatics.
This is a story for children and adults....for those who look up to the sky...and especially for those who don't...!
In his book, beautifully illustrated by artist, Mike Kelly, the author has tried to show that nature needs no dressing up from its raw beauty.
David wrote Stunt Crow after a year of staring at a patch of grass in Cheshire, England called Tinker's Hill. Most of the creatures the children will meet in Stunt Crow have scampered over that green slope, under brambles and into hedges, up oak trees and past the water's edge.
It started as a poem about a crow. Two years later it came to life, flew across the page in spectacular sharpness....a glimpse above the clouds...!
