My Thoughts & Review

George the Orphan Crow was such a wonderful read. It’s such a captivating read which tells a tale of friendship and loyalty as well as tackling themes such as death, loss and revenge.

This book definitely brought back memories of reading classic children’s book like Wind in the Willows which was one of my favourites and to this day I still love it.

This book is beautifully written and I fell in love with the magical characters that came to life in this story. I loved George and the other characters, they were so well drawn. I while reading I could really imagine how they looked and acted. I think this book would make a wonderful children’s TV series and one I would definitely watch myself. This book definitely brought back memories of reading classic children’s books like Wind in the Willows and another one that I can’t remember the name of but think was called Animals of Farthing Wood, which were some of my favourites during childhood.

There was only one thing missing for me in this book and that was some Illustrations. This isn’t even an issue but entirely based on my very own preference.

Although this book is aimed at children I would be happy to recommend it to any adult, looking for a light, yet fast paced read. I really enjoyed this book and cannot wait to see what’s instore for George next, I really hope there is another book.

A massive thank you to Helen for getting in touch and sending me a copy of this book. I will definitely be reading it to my nephews when everything is back to normal and I can spend more time with them.
