There's something very different going on in the raven's nest.When the eggs hatch, a pink girl emerges from one of the shells, along with her black raven siblings. Loving raven parents take their little Rosie just the way she is.In the beginning, Rosie tries to do everything her siblings do. She opens her mouth to receive worms from her parents, tries to caw until she is hoarse, and wildly flaps her arms in an attempt to fly. The neighbors offer encouragement "Rub it with birch leaves. That will make its feathers grow!"Rosie finally realizes she is different. Maybe she can't caw or fly, but a world of discovery is waiting for her. Helga Bansch's exquisite artwork of collages and colored images, including comic-style panels, bring humor, mood, and emotion to Rosie's story. The reader is drawn to Rosie from the instant she pushes herself from the egg, smiling and happy to greet her family, oblivious to her difference.

A wonderful story of how anyone figures out the answer to the question: Who am I? Gorgeous illustrations and a new twist on a timeless story!
