K-Gr. 2. A love of reading is the center of this book, in which a scarecrow shares his passion with a redheaded boy. The young narrator is startled on a stroll through the fields when he comes upon a talking scarecrow with a suitcase by his side. The boy is not a reader, but the scarecrow loves a good book, and fortunately there are some in the suitcase. Before long, the boy is reading Moby Dick, and then the duo moves on to Peter Pan, Mary Poppins, and The Secret Garden. Moulton's text has real problems. A rhyming text is often hard to sustain, and this one, much, much too long, has plenty of opportunity to falter. But the artwork is grand. Using tea-stained papers that give an antique feeling to the art, Good provides a cast of jolly characters, richly drawn. When drawing characters from other books, she manages to give the feel of the original illustrations. This is purposive (and what nonreader would start his reading career with Moby Dick?), but it's hard to find fault with the book-loving message. Ilene Cooper
