Listing Detail Tabs

by Gennady Spirin

Gorgeous true story based on the author's own family's experience when his 5-year old son found a crow with a broken wing

The veterinarian told the boy it would never fly again. But they brought her home, nurtured her & named her Martha

Poor Martha, bandaged & laid in a basket, soon becomes a saucy companion on the artist's table & even atop his head. She made their home, her home

Eventually Martha is set free. But next spring she returned - with her little nestlings!


Full-page watercolour paintings of the artist's studio & his Moscow neighbours & cityscape are modern but have an old-fashioned feel that suggests a tale of long ago & far away

Affectionate & warm as toast

A beautiful story of compassion & care

Gentle story touches on themes of responsibility & freedom


Simply beautiful! Will be remembered & passed down from generation to generation. The artwork is stunning!

It made the story so enjoyable to know that it was real

A very gentle tale about our being part of nature
