Summary "This informative and whimsical picture book explores how a love of birds inspired two literary greats--Charles Dickens and Edgar Allen Poe. It was Dickens's own pet raven, Grip, that inspired Poe's greatest poem. In this ingenious slice of history, biography, and even ornithology, two brilliant writers bond over an unexpected, shared fascination. This endearing and unusal book celebrates the fact that creative inspiration can be found everywhere."-- Provided by publisher.
