Summary

It's early in the morning, and Liz is already out of bed. Her father has finally returned home from fighting in World War II, and they have a lot of catching up to do. She puts on the rainbow-plaid shirt he bought her at Kronenberg's store, and they head to a roadside diner for milk and cherry pie. There, he gives her the crow call, a smooth wooden whistle for drawing birds close enough to shoot.

They walk quietly into the woods—the father with his hunting rifle slung over his shoulder and the girl with the crow call in her pocket. Liz wishes it were different. She wishes that crows didn't eat crops, so no one would want to shoot them. But there in the hushed autumn woods, she'll call for the birds. When they come, they'll bring with them a chance for Liz to trust and believe in her father again.

Based on a true story from author Lois Lowry's childhood, this beautifully conceived picture book is a touching portrait of a father-daughter bond that endures despite distance and time apart.
