Sinopsis: A wonderful new tale of two friends: a scarecrow made of straw and turnip, and his servant, a clever little boy named Jack. Their journey of discovery takes them into hilarious situations and terrifying dangers, but Jack's common sense always saves the day. This fantastic story of friendship and love is the first book for younger readers from Philip Pullman since I Was A Rat, and his first full-length book since The Amber Spyglass.
"The magic of this lies in his ability to transcend current fashions and tastes and tap into children's universal desire to understand the world they live in" ( Irish Times)
"It is remarkable skill to make simplicity and even silliness embrace such complexity yet offer children so much wisdom. Somehow, it's not surprising that Pullman can do it" ( The Sunday Times)
"The story ends as confidently as it begins, written for children with utmost respect for and delight in their intelligence, humour and imagination . . . Genius demands a continual purification and renewal of talent. Pullman has realised that and it's why he is great" ( The Times)
"The book is a perfectly made gem, full of fun, fireworks and wit. We continue to be lucky to have Pullman writing for us" ( Guardian)
"Pullman has conjured up something entirely his own: a tale of great charm and wit, told in an easy style which reads as though it all came right in the first draft. It's aimed at a lower age-level than the Dark Materials trilogy . . . older children would find themselves enjoying it too" ( Independent on Sunday)
