Children's Book Review: The Scarecrows' Wedding, by Julia Donaldson.

If you're a fan of The Gruffalo, then you're going to love the new story out by the creative duo Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.

They have teamed up again to create The Scarecrows' Wedding, an engaging tale about two scarecrows who are in love!

Betty O'Barley and Harry O'Hay are two scarecrows on a farm who decide to get married. They intend it to be a wedding that no one will ever forget, so they make a list of the things they will need on the day. While Harry goes off to collect one of the things on the list, another scarecrow named Reginald Rake comes along and tries to take Harry's place!


With Julia's aptitude for rhyming, and Axel's vivid illustrations, this story will capture the hearts of children everywhere.
