Exactly as child-friendly and developmentally appropriate a picture book as one would expect from the author of Brave New World. Mr. Crow, speaking to his wife: "All I said was that I didn't think your idea was a very good one. Your ideas are seldome good, I may add." There are some brief moments of humor in the writing, the story at the core of it all is a solid one, the illustrator did as well as they could with it, but, um, yikes. "Amelia, you talk too much. Keep your beak shut and get out of your nest."

"A children's book by Aldous Huxley, the novelist known to generations of high school English students as the author of Brave New World.

Huxley wrote the book in 1944 as a Christmas gift for his young niece, Olivia, who often came to stay with him and his wife at their home in the Mojave Desert. It was his first and only children's story.

After being out of print for years, The Crows of Pearblossom has recently been re-issued with new illustrations by artist Sophie Blackall. And although the story may not be for the faint of heart, the book does have a happy ending."
