What I am Reviewing
Science comics: Crows is part of the fascinating and educational series of Science Comics. An illustrated, full-colour graphic novel style, this comic goes in-depth into the intelligence of these wonderful birds. Crows are such a genius animals! Produced by First Second books and written by Kyla Vanderklugt. A hardcover that runs at 128 pages. Written for youth 9-13 years old, it fits well within that demographic, though as an adult, I loved it! I am reviewing Crows: Genius Birds on behalf of Raincoast books.
Details on Science Comics: Crows
From the cover: Did you know that crows make their own tools, lead complex social lives, and never forget a human face? Scientists are just beginning to unlock the secrets of the crow’s brain to discover how these avian Einsteins can be as smart as some primates, and even perform some of the same cognitive feats as human children! Crows have problem-solving skills that will make you you rethink what it means to be a bird brain!
You will adore this book, or at least your middle schoolers will. Humour is found throughout as the crow and dog communicate. You’ll love the clean, well-inked graphics, and the easy to read font.
Being delighted with the sheer amount of information presented with a great story-line, you will most likely read through Crows: Genius Birds more than once.

Science Comics: Crows is a well-done graphic novel written with a clear font and good inking.
