Webbster & Button and the Crows: A warm and wonderful story
 

American author and illustrator K.C. Remington has published the second title in his “Webbster & Button Children’s Stories” series. In Webbster & Button and the Crows, our two heroes, puppy Webbster and kitten Button, become good friends with a whole family of crows. When the big old oak tree, where these animals are staying, is demolished in a thunderstorm, all of them need to find a new home. It turns out to be a journey of growing up and learning.

Webbster & Button and the Crows continues to feature Remington’s humorous writing and illustrating style. In the same way that even the oldest crow displays a child’s innocence, Mother Nature is full of mercy and vitality even when life remains unforgiving and everything seems tough. As John Cech, professor of children’s literature at the University of Florida and author of Angels and Wild Things: The Archetypal Poetics of Maurice Sendak has praised, the adventures of Webbster and Button are indeed “warm and wonderful stories”.

Interestingly, the crows in the English version of this title have been changed into magpies in the Chinese version. This is because many Chinese consider the crow to be a bird of back luck, and it is important to be flexible and believe as the Chinese do while in the Chinese world.

Nonetheless, reading Webbster & Button and the Crows is to explore a magical world where each step of the journey reveals surprisingly warmth. It brings good dreams to kids when you read it with them – and you don’t even have to worry that kids might be disturbed by Button’s noisy snoring.
