The imagination behind this story is amazing and so interactive! Definitely a tale that we have all lived: what can we do when we are bored? There is hope for this little crow, and the ending is just adorable beyond words!
— From Bianca's Picks

How does one overcome profound boredom? In a world where technology is so easily accessible, and entertainment is in the palm of our hands, society has lost touch with what the pleasure of company really entails. Reflect, with this lonely, and bored crow, the complexity of what it means to enjoy company and to create a space uniquely your own.
— From Kayla's picks


A quirky and relatable story about balancing creativity and connection

A crow finds itself in an empty corner and begins to make the space its own. First, it furnishes the corner with a bed, a bookshelf, a rug, even a potted plant. In the newly decorated space, the crow reads and eats, listens to music and waters the plant, but something's missing. What is it?

The crow decides to decorate more, drawing geometric patterns on the walls in yellow. The corner is filled with color and shapes, but something is still missing. The crow adds a window, and finally discovers what it needed all along--a way to connect with the world outside and to make a new friend.

This highly original, almost-wordless picture book is the first title by award-winning Korean author and illustrator Zo-O to be published in English. Soft, detailed illustrations of the cozy corner will inspire kids to express themselves in their own spaces, and the crow's problem-solving skills encourage readers to think about how they can comfortably step outside of their comfort zone.
