Worzel Gummidge

by Barbara Euphan Todd

Perfect for KS2

When John and Susan see the SCARECROW standing in the middle of a field in the pouring rain, he doesn’t look that REMARKABLE.

JUST LIKE ANY OTHER SCARECROW REALLY.

But when he turns up at the cottage to warm himself by the fire, they realize that this is a very special scarecrow indeed.

His name is WORZEL GUMMIDGE, and he’s about to fill the children’s world with

FUN AND MAGIC…

This much-loved story about everyone’s favourite scarecrow is sure to captivate the imaginations of readers everywhere. 

I remember Worzel Gummidge when I was a child and so I was VERY excited to hear that there is a new BBC adaptation coming to our screens this Christmas.  Boxing Day and December 27th to be exact!  So there couldn’t be a more perfect time to introduce your young readers to this loveable, magical Scarecrow.
