    As in the author's The Rainbow Fish (1992), Pfister's best-seller beloved by several generations of readers, the use of shiny foil adds shimmer to his story, this time of a young raven. A gimmick, yes, but an effective one. In this contemporary fable, the silver material comes to represent the endurance and triumph of a small, bullied bird. One of the bullies relates the tale: along with his flock, he refused to play with the tiny raven unless it flew to the moon and back, saying, "We used to do it every day, when we were your age." The little one takes the challenge, and on a two-page spread dominated by a moon of reflective foil, his wings become illuminated, and back on earth falls one silver feather. The spare illustrations feature only the birds, moon, and tree branches. The flock, with glossy black feathers and bright yellow beaks, are particularly menacing when they encircle their bullied prey. The message might be overt, but the overall package is out to dazzle young listeners. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
