I love this little book. It has a wonderful message of friendship, teaching that not is always as it seems and to give people a chance. It is a wonderful story of loneliness and how it is overcome. I also love the illustrations in this book. The art work along is worth the price of the book several times over. The text is simple and quite lyrical. This is a joy to read to the kids in class as well as to the grand children and children at home. This one has been around for a couple of years and I am quite glad to see it still in print. This is one of those you will want to buy and keep. Recommend this one highly.

beautifully illustrated!

Despite the actually scary scarecrow, my 2 1/2 yr old boys love this book. They bring it to us to read several times a week. They love feeling the embossed pictures and telling me what they see. As the reading parent, I don't mind reading it to them over and over. The illustrations truly are beautiful, the font is also open and pleasing to read, and the story itself is one we should all remember - judge other not by their looks but by the friend they might become. My only concern might be that the scarecrow really might be too scary for some children with its jagged teeth and open mouth.I'm suprised this book isn't available today (Jan '02). It was printed in 1999 and our library copy (now due back after being checked out for 3 months!)is still in perfect condition. I hope the printer considers another printing for those of us who want our own copy for our collection!

A beautifully illustrated heartwarming tale

This book is beautifully illustrated with detailed pictures of beries, wheat , animals and flowers. Each page has a beautifully illustrated border in addition to the primary picture. It is a heartwarming tale of friendship. Even the writing font is beautiful.

Wonderful Book

The illustrations in this book are beautiful. The embossed, double thickness pages make it more "handable" for my toddler whose prone to destroying his sister's books. My 4 year old loved story and I loved the lesson it teaches!

The Lonely Scarecrow

Outstanding! The story is wonderful and the illustrations are beautiful. It is truly one of the nicest books we have in our extensive collection of childrens books. It is really appropriate for a much wider range of ages than what was recommended.
