 This beautiful tale of an unlikely friendship between Scarecrow and Crow is one of my favorites. The gorgeous prose is complimented by stunning illustrations that gently show acceptance, empathy and encouragement of others. This stellar author and illustrator trio have created a classic that will be loved for years to come.

“An emotionally impactful exploration of love and loneliness, this is an essential addition to any picture book collection.” School Library Journal (starred review)

Bestselling author Beth Ferry (Stick and Stone) and the widely acclaimed Fan Brothers (The Night Gardener) present a gorgeous and poignant picture book about two unexpected friends and the special connection they share.

This tender and affectionate story reminds us of the comforting power of friendship and the joy of helping others—a tale that will inspire and delight children for generations to come.

All the animals know not to mess with old Scarecrow. But when a small, scared crow falls from midair, Scarecrow does the strangest thing.…

He saves the tiny baby crow.

Soon a loving bond grows between the two unlikely friends. But is it strong enough to weather the changing of the seasons?
