The Lonely Scarecrow by Tim Preston, Maggie Kneen
In this ornately embossed gift book, a group of animals learns the true
meaning of friendship and acceptance.
When winter descends upon the cornfield, the first snowfall brings about
an amazing transformation: a lonely scarecrow, ignored and feared by
everyone because of his flapping coat and jagged metal mouth, is covered
by a thick blanket of snow. Before long, he is transformed into a jolly
snowman and is welcomed for the first time into the animals' games. But
what will the scarecrow's newfound friends think when the snow melts
and he returns--jagged teeth and all?
Lavish embossing on every page gently illuminates the turning of the
seasons--from coppery autumn foliage to sparkling snowscapes. Readers
will be enchanted by the fondly rendered creatures, which include bright-eyed
birds and field mice, a family of furry rabbits, and a wise old owl,
as well as the poetic text printed in elegant calligraphy. This ornate
gift book is a treat for nature lovers of all ages.
