Tattybogle the scarecrow has a head full of straw and cheerful thoughts. The rain is his music, the birds and animals his friends and the wind is his dancing partner. Nothing gets him down, he loves everything, even the crows! Then one day the Autumn wind is so strong that Tattybogle is blown to pieces. All that is left of him is an old stick, but he never loses hope. Spring turns out to be the start of a glorious new life for him as his stick takes root and he becomes a tree!
