Product Details


“This is one of the BEST picture books I’ve read so far in 2023. Its writing is clever. The story is well-constructed. And, it made me feel warm and fuzzy things.” –-Pat Zietlow-Miller, author of Be Kind and Wherever You Go

“Friendship can withstand time and distance thanks to hope. Houts’ precise, evocative text employs rich vocabulary and will appeal to imaginative youngsters. Palacios’ enchanting illustrations combine a vivid palette of reds, oranges, greens, and blues with an irresistible retro style that lends a timelessness to images of dragons, castles, sailing ships, and tiny scarecrow heroes that accompany scenes of the girl reading aloud. A quiet, beautifully crafted friendship tale that’s just right for storytime.” –Kirkus reviews

“The gentle, smoothly written narrative revolves around the scarecrow, a silent, sympathetic character who asks for nothing but appreciates what he receives. The colorful, distinctive illustrations focus on the two main characters, often surrounded by a profusion of flowers that express the idyllic happiness of their times together. A simply told, emotionally satisfying picture book.” —Booklist
