AÂ classic Hawthorne tale is retold and illustrated by the San Souci brothers, now reissued in paperback. 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. 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.
