Once there was a Postman who fell in love with a Raven. The couple conceives a child-an extraordinary raven girl trapped in a human body. The raven girl feels imprisoned by her arms and legs and covets wings and the ability to fly. She grows into a young woman, until one day she meets an unorthodox doctor who is willing to change her.
One of the world's most beloved storytellers has crafted a dark fairy tale full of wonderment and longing. Complete with Audrey Niffenegger's bewitching etchings and paintings, Raven Girl explores the bounds of transformation and possibility.
"Raven Girl is a delight to hold and take in. Lovers of fairy tales and some graphic novel fans should find much to love here." -School Library Journal online
"The book is a colorist's dream that hauntingly captures the world of birds and humans and, as the title suggests, a creature that is somewhere in between." -The Chicago Sun-Times
