I love picture books with very few or no words because it leaves lots of room for interpretation from the reader! This odd little book sees a crow stuck in a corner, and instead of being sad, it gets creative! Soon the corner is full of plants and comfy chairs and books, with a window to top it all off! Before you know it, our little crow has made a friend through the window they built. What a great way to teach and encourage creativity and teach children how to entertain themselves and pull them out of their ‘I’m bored’ moments. The illustrations are very cool too!

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.
