Publisher's Summary

Spending their summer holidays with Farmer Braithwaite and his wife in Scatterbrook, John and Susan come across a particularly lifelike scarecrow in a nearby field. That evening, much to the children's surprise, the scarecrow makes an appearance in the Braithwaites' kitchen to warm himself by the fire. He is Worzel Gummidge and he is no ordinary scarecrow. His tendency to cause mayhem wherever he goes sparks a series of mishaps and adventures, often with hilarious results.

This is the first of the Worzel Gummidge novels, originally published in 1936. Later, the Worzel Gummidge stories were adapted for radio and television, ranking among the top 50 greatest British children's programs, with Jon Pertwee (Doctor Who) playing the eponymous scarecrow, with a dedicated following to this day. Our audiobook is read by the multi-talented Jessica Martin, who infuses the stories with verve and excitement.

Yes.

Any additional comments?

This is the sort of book that takes you back to when you were young, and life was exciting and magical. That's if you were born in the 60's...

Kids loved it!
Good old fashioned story... but not boring.
It was like a good English lesson mixed with a fun story.
Read beautifully.
