Once there was an easily frightened by almost anything, and not particularly sensible crow, named Cable who quit at the slightest hurdle. Bullied by his bossy wife to gather worms for their breakfast, he reluctantly sets about his given challenge, coming face to face with his worst nightmares and some just plain stupid obstacles on his journey. Meeting up with his quirky relatives and friends along this seemingly fruitless journey; does Cable finally succeed with this mission to gather worms? Does he make it back to his home safely in one piece? Join this exasperating journey with this very special crow and find out what happened.


An energetic and charming picture book, containing several short contemporary messages, such as litter and the environment etc., along with eye-popping detailed illustrations. There are nuggets of humour for the grown-ups reading aloud to children although the language is accessible for children to read independently, as they are developing their reading skills.

Lorna lives in the leafy suburb of Low Fell with her fiancé Richard and loves nothing better than exploring the countryside, art galleries, yoga and engaging in the local cultural scene.

At the age of two and a half, she began her own school life ahead of schedule, attending her mother’s primary school. Following her mother’s footsteps into teaching, she became an art and design teacher. Passionate for art, reading writing and drama; Lorna has acted in several amateur plays. She thoroughly enjoys emulating the dialect and mannerisms of a myriad of people, which benefits her storytelling.

    Cable the Crow is an attractive book for children and all who read to them..

    An observant account of the travels of Cable, with fresh, colourful and vivid illustrations accompanying a child-friendly narrative, enhance the pleasure inquisitiveness and happiness of children, as they engage with his determined, though at times apprehensive quest.
    Along the way he meets an array of likeable friends, neighbours, and family, as well as observing hazards influencing the countryside.
    A good value buy as children will want to read and go back to read again and again.

    Love this book. I bought it on Amazon because I was attracted by the crow on the cover. I was looking for something different for a friend's children. They loved it and I enjoyed reading it myself. I hope there are some follow-up books because we can't wait to see what he gets up to next...
