I just read a book by Helen Fox and the title is: 

George the Orphan Crow and the Creatures of Blossom Valley


This book has such a creative plot!  An amazing idea that the crows parents are killed by hunters and then George has to go along the road of life alone.  Along the way, he has interesting adventures and oh the creatures that he meets.  How kind and helpful everyone is to George is just touching.  It is such a vivid and joyful story and the characters in this book are amazing.  The story flows like iced tea out of a pitcher into a glass filled with ice it’s just refreshing.      

I just passed this book on to my twelve-year-old son to read because it was such a heartwarming delight and I know he will appreciate the read as well.  After that, I am going to gift this book to school so that the students in his class can enjoy this read.  I am going to order three more copies so all my children will have a copy in their classrooms and hopefully the teachers will pass this masterpiece unto them.  

Helen has an amazing gift and talent that she has graced the world with through her storytelling and I will definitely be reading more of her work.

    1. I really love how you used Greek history in the book as well. That to me makes it even more interesting character wise that’s really an aspect that I loved. My son Shaun loves Greek history as well and I know the book will strike his fancy as well.


      1. My dearest wonderful people!!! I come from Athens Greece. I studied ancient and modern Greek I love ancient civilizations and mythologies, especially the Greek. I believe the Greek mythology is the richest, Each time I visit Athens, I spend early Sunday mornings at the foot of the Acropolis gazing down at the sleeping city, and take myself back 2000 years, Athena, the Goddess of Athens, Socrates and Plato There are times, I believe i must have lived in that epoch. It cannot be true, can it?
