Description

Featuring wonderful new illustrations from Peter Bailey, this brilliantly funny and moving tale by multi-award winning Philip Pullman, is perfect for readers young and old.

One night, during a terrible thunderstorm, a boy named Jack shelters in a barn. The following morning he is confused to find a scarecrow with a turnip head calling out to him. For a moment he thinks he is imagining it. But he isn’t, the scarecrow has been struck by lightning in exactly the right way to bring him completely to life.

Jack becomes the scarecrow’s personal servant and together they decide to set out and see the world. It is a journey that neither of them could have possibly imagined, filled with adventure – and it will change them both in ways they never expected . . .
