From the superstar team of Donaldson and Scheffler, a barnyard wedding for the ages!
Betty O'Barley and Harry O'Hay
Were scarecrows. (They scared lots of crows every day.)
Harry loved Betty, and Betty loved Harry,
So Harry said, 'Betty, my beauty, let's marry!
Let's have a wedding, the best wedding yet,
A wedding that no one will ever forget.' And so begin the plans for the best wedding the barnyard has ever seen! The scarecrow couple sets off for a hunt round the farm for everything they need for the festivities -- a big white dress, rings, wedding bells (or, at least, cow bells)... But when Harry's search for flowers takes him far, far away, villainous scarecrow rival Reginald Rake sees his chance to ruin this beautiful day... Hurry back, Harry! A rollicking read-aloud adventure from the beloved team behind STICK MAN, SUPERWORM, and ROOM ON THE BROOM.
