The Scarecrows' Wedding is a wonderfully
heartwarming picture book from the creators of The Gruffalo and Stick Man.
Written in Julia Donaldson's glorious rhyme and illustrated
in glowing colour by Axel Scheffler, The Scarecrows' Wedding is
a fabulous love story, with drama, humour, originality
- and a happy ending!
Two scarecrows, Betty O'Barley and Harry O'Hay,
are planning the perfect wedding.
But wicked scarecrow, Reginald Rake, has other ideas and almost
ruins their special day.
Harry must become a hero before he and Betty can have the wedding
of their dreams.
A wonderfully funny story from the author and illustrator of The
Gruffalo, Stick Man and ZOG, which
have all been made into animated films shown on BBC1
