Description

The celebrated author of Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny joins forces with the Caldecott Medalist of Smoky Night to tell this tender story about loving and enduring family relationships.

With words by the renowned Margaret Wise Brown and illustrations by David Diaz, this treasured picture book tells the tale of a little scarecrow boy and the lessons he learns from his scarecrow father about the world--until he decides to test his knowledge and himself.

This tender and funny story celebrates the tradition of passing knowledge from one generation to the next, and the exuberance of reaching one's potential. Especially perfect for sharing during the Halloween season.

"The scarecrow boy will enchant young readers. He may be made of straw, but he is all heart--and so is this picture book." --Publishers Weekly

"A sunny coming-of-age story." --School Library Journal
