    The Scarecrows Wedding

    Having read some very early reviews of the book, I stood and read it before deciding to purchase the title for my grandchildren and I really cannot understand what the fuss is all about. Yes there are a couple of verses towards the end that talk about smoking and what happens if you are not careful but it is being put across in such a way that for the youngsters it is a lesson learnt. All in All, it is a very good story that has a happy ending.
