A Scarecrows life isn't just what we think it is. Cynthia Rylant tells the story from the scarecrows point of view. Very detailed and colorful pictures. It also shows us how a scarecrow can see the different things in nature.

I am a big Cynthia Rylant fan, and this sweet book is told from the scarecrow's point of view. One of my favorites of hers, for I think I fell in love with the cheerful, contented scarecrow, who loves the world around him and reveals in its wonder.
