Overview

THE GOLDEN SCARECROW....IS A COLLECTION OF TEN SHORT STORIES! EACH ONE OF A YOUNG CHILD LIVING AROUND THE CITY SQUARE! A REALLY FUN READ! 310 PAGES IN PRINT!

• This volume includes a “Detailed Biography” of our author, Sir Hugh Seymour Walpole.

Walpole's courage in the face of the widest skepticism is nowhere more daring than in The Golden Scarecrow, a collection of sympathetic sketches for grown-ups, of episodes in the lives of ten children all living about a quiet old square in London.

It is the story of a dozen children living about a spacious old square, a square filled with leisure and the sound of leaves, in the heart of London. The son of a duke is one, and one the forlornly playing child of a housekeeper who drank and was untidy, but their lives were all bound together by the Friend who is the Friend of Stevenson's child-verses who in dangerous or unhappy moments comes to children and with his great warm arm guides them. . . .
There is a wonderful fancifulness in The Golden Scarecrow, a mellow and gentle beauty; and a really remarkable ability to enter into the children's own world, where carpets are vast moors, and the fire whispers secrets, and the lashing out of a whip of wind suggests things vast and secret and perilous. Mr. Walpole has "loved enough"; has so loved children and the little land of the imagination that he has put into this book the quality which can never be quite plumbed tenderness. And it is not the awkward tenderness of the person not born to write; but graceful and perfect and winning as a Greek vase.
"The fact that childhood is not a mere prelude to adult life but worth while for its own sake has seldom been more beautifully expressed."
"Few adults preserve their line of communication with that world of fancy so real to children. But when one of rare fancy visualizes it a chord of kinship is struck; memory rolls back the years, and the heart responds. Barrie did it in The Little White Bird. Hugh Walpole joins him with The Golden Scarecrow"
