“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?

“A welcome addition to autumnal storytelling.”—Kirkus

About the Author


Beth Ferry is a New York Times bestselling picture book author who lives with her family in New Jersey, where she enjoys all, well, at least three, of the four seasons. Although summer is Beth’s favorite season, autumn always seems to come at exactly the right time. Like summer, most of Beth’s favorite words begin with the letter s, including sunshine, sand, salt, and, of course, scarecrow. Since she plants only pumpkins in her garden, Beth has found that she really doesn’t need a scarecrow, but she would welcome one with open arms. You can learn more at www.bethferry.com.



Terry Fan and Eric Fan are brothers who made their picture book debut with the acclaimed book The Night Gardener, which they wrote and illustrated together. As children they spent one lazy summer on a farm, stargazing at night, chasing fireflies, loading hay bales, and watching the season slowly give way to the brilliant colors of fall. They now reside in Toronto, where they still gaze at the night sky and look for those rare falling stars to wish upon. Visit them online at www.thefanbrothers.com.
