Lila and the Crow

Gabrielle Grimard

Annick Press, Ages 5-8

IN HER authorial debut, Montreal illustrator Gabrielle Grimard tackles bullying and diversity through the heartbreaking story of Lila, whose new classmates mock her for looking different. Every day, the other students call her a crow because of her dark hair, skin, and eyes. And every day she covers up more and more of herself, trying to hide. It’s no surprise that she dislikes the persistent crows that approach her on her walk home. As the autumn festival approaches, all the other children delight in planning their costumes, but Lila just wants to disappear. When she reaches her saddest depths, the friendship of the crows and the gift of their feathers provide her with a festival costume that lets her embrace her appearance.
