Flight of the Jackdaw

Grateful for the warm and heartfelt responses Izumi and I have been receiving to our recently released fable, The Jackdaw and the Doll. One of the reviews shared below:

THE JACKDAW AND THE DOLL is that rare book for children that also speaks to discerning adult readers, much like Shel Silverstein’s THE GIVING TREE, Ted Hughes THE IRON MAN, or many of the works of the great Theodor Geisel. This story is a rich fable that allows the reader to anchor themselves in a fairy tale while also experiencing a poignant truth. As writer and illustrator, John Biscello and Izumi Yokoyama make a profound team. Their synthesis of talents elevates this modest book to the level of a classic.
