We first met Tink when he came to live in Crow Cove as a young boy in  Eidi. Now hard times have come to the little settlement, and their food supply is dwindling. Tink, with the help of a newcomer to Crow Cove, saves his friends from starvation by learning how to fish—and also learns important lessons about the complexities of human nature, the importance of compassion, and his own valued place in his community. Tink is a strong new addition to the much-acclaimed Children of Crow series.

Praise for Tink

Praise for Eidi:
 
"Like the previous book in the Children of Crow Cove series, this unassuming yet compelling story is notable for the simplicity and power of the storytelling, the clarity of description and characterization, and the humanity of the ideas at the novel’s heart.” —Starred, Booklist

“[A] heartfelt story of love and belonging.” Kirkus Reviews
 
Praise for The Crow-Girl:
 
"Poignant...symbolism and power of names thread through the narrative. Touching on universal themes, this quiet adventure story has the depth and flavor of a tale from long ago and far away...a rewarding read." --Starred, School Library Journal

"There's a fairy-tale quality about this well written story...compelling." --Starred, Booklist

"Luminous and uncluttered...With resonate concrete images and without sentimentality, Bredsdorff tells a harshly beautiful story that charts the characters' progress toward interdependence." --Starred, The Horn Book

"Satisfying...Readers will hope that more of Bredsdorff's sturdy fiction reaches these shores." --Publishers Weekly

"Strong-boned and sinewy...a potential new favorite." --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
