About the Book Bea get introduced to the art of scarecrow building. She enjoys it so much she finds a way to be at each scarecrow building session. Each time she goes, a different part of the scarecrow is being built - the head, chest, abdomen. Then there is the assembly and finally the dressing of the scarecrows. There are many volunteers and lots of fun. But everything must be done in time for the Festival!
