Overview

Ravens have lived in the Tower of London for centuries. According to legend, if the ravens ever leave the Tower, it will crumble to dust and England will be faced with a terrible disaster. To avoid this fate, it is believed that sometime during the 1600s, King Charles II decreed that at least six ravens should be maintained at the Tower for all time. Set against this historical backdrop, The Legend of the Ravens is a beautifully illustrated book, which begins as Edward James explores the Tower of London and becomes friends with the ravens in the 17th century. When the ravens get into trouble and the king demands that they be removed from the Tower, Edward must step forward to help the ravens and protect England from the powerful curse. A must-read for young visitors to the Tower of London. Ages 7 - 9 years.

Editorial Reviews

Midwest Book Review - Diane Donovan
The Legend of the Ravens by Branwyn Rhodes is a children’s book based on historical legend: a fairytale set in London in the 1600s, when Edward James becomes friends with the ravens living in the Tower of London. The King has protected these ravens (as did his predecessors) for centuries, believing that six ravens should live in the Tower at all times to prevent disaster. The problem is, the cantankerous ravens get into trouble and the king changes his mind about their beneficial powers.
