Tattybogle

This 'gentle tale of hope and renewal' (Daily Mirror review) is about a scarecrow with a head full of straw and cheerful thoughts. He is happy in all kinds of weather; the rain  is his music and the wind is his dancing partner. Then, one autumn day, the wind blows too hard...but what looks like a disaster is only the beginning of a glorious new life for Tattybogle.

Illustrated with Ken Brown's stunning nature pictures, this award-winning book is now a very successful musical for primary-age children to perform, created by Starshine Music and with a world-wide presence.
