       Additional Information  
     
      Long ago in New England, a powerful witch made a scarecrow from a collection of old scraps. The witch was so pleased with her creation that she decided to bring it to life. With a puff of magic smoke, the scarecrow was transformed into a handsome young man and christened Feathertop. The mischievous witch then sent Feathertop off to woo the beautiful Polly Gookin, and soon Feathertop and Polly were deeply in love. But Feathertop was, after all, merely a patchwork of sticks and witchcraft. Only the magic of love could make him truly human.
    "The smoothly flowing oral quality of Robert San Souci's text is matched by the interpretation in brilliant colors and lively action of Daniel San Souci's pictures, making Feathertop a highly effective picture book for any season of the year." -- School Library Journal
