S.T. is a foul-mouthed domesticated crow who lives with his human buddy, Big Jim. One day, Big Jim’s eye mysteriously falls out. What’s more, he starts to behave very strangely. When S.T. looks for help, he discovers that Big Jim isn’t the only human having problems. Riding on the head of lovably dimwitted bloodhound, S.T. sets off on an epic quest to save Big Jim and maybe the human race. This fantasy tale is a quirky charmer that will please animal lovers, especially readers who own pets. It also has a surprisingly poignant message about the need to respect and protect the natural world.
