Only child Ben moves to the country with his mum and befriends a crow for company. However, when a local boy sees this and jeers at him mercilessly, Ben very soon becomes a laughing stock. The bullies want him to hurt the thing he loves the most. But none of them have reckoned on the power of Crow Law! A Murder of Crows is part of the Sharp Shades 2.0 series. These books offer the same type of fast-paced short stories (just 64pp each) found in the Shades 2.0 series. The Sharp Shades stories include simpler language, a larger font and are illustrated throughout. They are perfect for older readers who may find longer books too daunting, but who still want the excitement of a great story told with pace and style. A Murder of Crows is ideal for reluctant readers aged 12+ with a reading ages of 9 - 10. Published by Ransom Publishing.
