As opposed to the first book–which I rated 3 stars
–this little story gets 4 stars
from me! Why? Because it was lovely!!! As delicious as a bite of chocolate cake, melting on your tongue! I LOVED IT!
I stated quite clearly that I'm not a fan of birds, but guess what... I actually warmed up to the magpies tattoos! I thought they were gorgeous, and loved the letters which resulted from Crane losing a bird
... They contained some hilarious one-liners!Exhibit A:My dear Mr Day
I look forward to retrieving my property. May I propose that you visit my residence? I believe you enjoyed the view.

[...] I wonder if you are free to visit tonight? I will clear my desk in anticipation.
Yours as ever
