Product description

A scarecrow and a small boy fall headlong into adventure – and learn some important lessons about life – in this wise and witty masterpiece from Philip Pullman’s magical pen. One night, lightning strikes a field and brings a scarecrow to life. Kind-hearted but pompous and ambitious, he decides to see the world, and hires a little boy to be his servant. On their journey, each chapter of the book marks another episode of their adventures. The scarecrow can be silly and scatterbrained, and his decisions sometimes lead them into danger, but aided by his loyal servant’s common sense, will he learn what he was looking for – and find it in the end? This tale of self-discovery and friendship has a gentle, old-fashioned feel, and is perfect for reading alone or sharing together in instalments.
