THE PRINCESS AND THE CROW

A Review

ANITA BACHA comes back to us with a story in prose for children and her favourite set-up is again an island.

She paints the beauty of nature, its radiant colours, its tropical fruits and flowers, the beach and the sea.

This time her heroine is a Princess of this island and her best friends is the birds.

She is full of pity for this wounded one-eyed bird that falls on her lap one day. She nurses him and feeds him.

Her reward is to see the bird transformed into a handsome Prince who asks her to marry him.

The morale of the story is to teach to our young ones the true meaning of love- to let go not to possess.

To allow our partner to grow, not to keep him egoistically to oneself.
