    Ages 5^-9. Annie Mae leads a fine life with her faithful dog in a run-down cabin. There's not much in the way of food, but they get by--and there's always enough for Annie Mae's many bird friends. One evening when the cupboard is almost bare, a man knocks at the door asking for a place to lay his head. Annie Mae offers Raven Reed what little she has. Seeing her generous spirit, Raven shakes the magic sack he totes; out spills food, firewood, extra furniture, and whatever Annie needs. The next day he's gone, but he has left the shaking bag for Annie Mae. Although she never sees him again, she occasionally catches a glimpse of his eyes in the eyes of a visiting bird. The folk art, strikingly textured and colorful, gives this fable a strong sense of place and culture. Goodness of the soul has never looked so fresh.
