AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'"There was once a crow who lived in a tree by a waterhole. Each morning, she stared into the water, and saw another crow staring back. Crow thought Crow-in-the-waterhole was the most wonderful bird she had ever seen. 'She looks like a crow who could change the world. I wish I could be like her."

Finally, Crow flies away to seek her destiny, hoping to become as wonderful as Crow-in-the-waterhole. She travels far and wide, helping others along the way, only to find that her true destiny lies within.' (Source: Fremantle Press website)
