Summary
  • Illustrated by Sophie Blackall, this is a charming story for children by the author of 'Brave New World'. Written by Aldous Huxley in 1944 for his niece, it is a funny, sly story, similar in spirit to the work of AA Milne, and tells the story of Mr and Mrs Crow who live in a cotton-wood tree at Pearblossom in California. Due to a hungry rattlesnake living at the bottom of the tree, Mrs Crow's eggs disappear before they hatch. But with the help of his wise friend Old Man Owl, Mr Crow outwits the snake and Mrs Crow goes on to hatch 'four families of seventeen children each' and 'uses the snake as a clothesline on which to hang the little crows' diapers'
