“Little John Crow”: Storytime with authors Ziggy & Orly Marley

Reggae icon Ziggy Marley and his wife Orly introduce us to their character Little John Crow, a young vulture (corbeau) growing up in Bull Bay on the edge of the Blue Mountains in Jamaica who embarks on a journey of self-discovery when he is abandoned by his friends. Filled with humour and memorable characters, Little John Crow (Akashic Books) reminds us of the importance of accepting our differences and shows us that life offers a place and purpose for all of us — even scary scavengers!
