Recommended by Kirsty Smith, our Head of Booksales:
Ka, the Ring and the Raven is a beautifully written fable about a jackdaw excluded from his flock, who flies North in search of the mythical Old Raven.
The author Richard Halliwell, known for his pocket walking guides, takes the reader on a journey through the varied landscapes of the British countryside. From a village churchyard, through broadleaf woodlands, past sea cliffs and up to the snow-capped mountains, and back again, Ka encounters several other crow species and a few potential predators. His adventure teaches him much about the nature of family, relationships and responsibility.
The book is illustrated throughout with Rebecca Coope’s pen and ink drawings making it a truly delightful read for children and adults of all ages.
