    Gr. 4-7. Thirteen-year-old Charlie, concerned about his grandfather's declining health, hears a Teton/Sioux legend that ravens can cure the sick. He brings a nestling home and Granddad, an old naturalist, teaches him to care for the bird, Blue Sky, and how to record observations of its behaviors. Charlie learns much from Blue Sky, who imprints on the boy and serves as a source of interest and amazement to the entire family. Noted nature writer George weaves together personal and family experiences (her brother, Frank, and nephew, Charlie, studied raven behavior, and George herself kept a "pet" crow) with scientific facts to create a satisfying family story that will appeal to animal lovers everywhere. A secondary plot involving a Teton/Sioux classmate adds depth to the story, but center stage belongs to Blue Sky, a cunning, highly intelligent bird that requires his morning ritual with Granddad, recognizes humans with intent to harm, and even learns to mimic Granddad's refrain to Charlie: "write it down."
