Story Summary

For almost a decade, Mrs. Nellop has had a Crowder child in her class, each one worse than the last. When she finally gets fed up with their shiftless and cruel behavior, she comes up with a plan to cope with the plague of Crowders. Strangely, at the same time the Crowders disappear, a flock of five crows mysteriously show up in town.
