The Heron and the Crane

Crane lives at one end of a swamp and Heron at the other end. One day, Crane realizes he is lonely and thinks it's time he asks Heron to marry him. But life is never simple and proposing turns out to be more difficult than Crane could ever imagine . . .


"The text has me chuckling every time and the illustrations by Quentin Blake are the perfect accompaniment."
Parents In Touch

"Rather odd premise for a children's picture book, but somehow it manages to work . . . I like it better each time I read it!"
Ruth Ng -

"A charming new book aimed at young children featuring the world famously brilliant illustrations of Quentin Blake."
Bury Free Press

"John Yeoman and Quentin Blake are names on a book to guarantee something extra special and The Heron and the Crane is just that."
The School Librarian

"There is an appeal (and certainly some moxie) to swapping the expected happy ending for this more ruminative approach."
