The Crow-Girl: Wonderful and sweet

Leave a comment

The Crow-Girl is a classical, inspiring story by Bodil Bredsdorff,  a Danish children’s author. By a small sea cove were three houses, two of them abandoned. But the third one had smoke curling up from the chimney. This was where a girl and her grandmother lived together, dining on mussels and sea kale. The grandmother teaches the girl rules about people, how to judge them, if they are good or bad. Sadly, the grandmother passes away, leaving the girl on her own. She buries her grandmother beside her grandfather, then departs to make a new life. She meets all types of people along the way, and forms her own kind of family. Brings tears to your eyes.
