The Scarecrows’ Wedding

The Scarecrows’ Wedding

Illustrated by Axel Scheffler

Two scarecrows, Betty O’Barley and Harry O’Hay, are planning the perfect wedding. But wicked scarecrow, Reginald Rake, has other ideas and almost ruins their special day. Harry must become a hero before he and Betty can have the wedding of their dreams.

“The perfect marriage of rhyme and pictures … the delightful repetition and gentle humour are matched with wonderfully detailed illustrations that reveal more on each reading. A joy from start to finish.” The Daily Mail

“There’s huge warmth in every word, every drawing… An irresistible delight” Financial Times

Julia says ...

I really like the summery feel of Axel’s illustrations to this story. Here we are with Harry and Betty, launching the book in a field of maize.
