5.0 out of 5 stars Naughty Raven and Little Girl in Mad Grown-Up World, 8 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Arabel's Raven (Paperback)
"Arabel's Raven" is the first in a series about Arabel, who's around four and lives in 1970s London, and Mortimer, a big black sulky raven that eats stairs, gives dark looks, and says "Nevermore" into the telephone.

In this story, Arabel's father nearly runs Mortimer down on the road, takes him home to recover, and he is then adopted by Arabel as a pet. While Mortimer eats all the food in the fridge and makes bite-marks in all the records at the record shop, the police are trying to catch two local bank robbers. The robbers kidnap Mortimer on one of their heists, and it all becomes a mad adventure to find him and solve the mystery...... someone eating the escalators at the local train station is a clue to his whereabouts, though.

I read a number of these stories when I was a child, and I have just read this first book out loud to my 6-year-old daughter at bedtime, in instalments. She loves the Mortimer character. For children reading it themselves, it would be 7+ years.
