First of all, I love this book because it’s by Aldous Huxley. (Brave New World) This version is a classic that has been republished with a new illustrator. The mother crow keeps laying eggs over and over and over and every day she comes home to find they are gone. It turns out the snake is eating them and so she sends her husband out to “take care” of the snake. Her husband goes to owl for advice and they hatch a very sneaky plan to trick the snake. I love the relationships between all of the animals in this book. They are a little cheeky to each other which is a bit refreshing…I enjoy a little wit and sarcasm every now and again.
