Crow Call by Lois LowryTwo-time Newbery medalist Lois Lowry has crafted a beautiful picture book about the power of longing and the importance of reconnection between a girl and her father in post-WWII America.
This is the story of young Liz, her father, and their strained relationship. Dad has been away at WWII for longer than she can remember, and they begin their journey of reconnection through a hunting shirt, cherry pie, tender conversation, and the crow call. This allegorical story shows how, like the birds gathering above, the relationship between the girl and her father is graced with the chance to fly.
Opinion: What Happened to “American Dad!?”
Network: Adult Swim. The show centers around Drinky Crow a drunken crow and Uncle Gabby, described as a drunken Irish monkey. It has an eighteenth century nautical setting. The Drinky Crow show is a fast-paced, plot-twisting laff-riot combining adventure, romance, debauchery and graphic violence — offering something for everybody! After being dumped once again, Drinky Crow calls a suicide hotline and becomes friends with a victim of Proteus syndrome named Elephant Man. Uncle Gabby gets jealous, and befriends him too. The Maak's Place bar is shutting down in three days due to lack of customers, so Drinky Crow comes up with a plan to bring American college students to the bar.

The same sort of humor and sarcasm is heavily used in this series but I find it to be slightly tamer. One of the most appealing aspects of the show to me is the characters. Some of thier stereotypes in American Dad and Family Guy are so hard to see past you lose some of the character. Alternatively I feel the characters more often break the mold then reinforce stereotypes. I feel like this is a huge improvement on other shows like it. Another great aspect to the characters is their relatability.
