Summary
From a Newbery Medal-winning author, a look at life from a scarecrow's point of view, accompanied by "magnificent" illustrations (School Library Journal). Scarecrows. They perch high above gardens and fields, with borrowed coats and button eyes and pie-pan hands that glint in the sun. What else is there to know about them? Perhaps more than we realize. Newbery Medalist Cynthia Rylant's rich and poignant story, powerfully illustrated by Lauren Stringer, will resonate deeply in the hearts of readers, who just might find themselves seeing the world in a whole new way. "Rylant lyrically imagines the scarecrow as a grateful 'witness to life,' while the acrylic paintings evoke a warm, even nostalgic sense of plenty."—Publishers Weekly "Rylant uses casual, conversational language with simple elegance and pleasing rhythms."—School Library Journal "Rylant is in fine form."—Kirkus Reviews
