The Adventure of the Scarecrow

A touching story about finding the right place that you belong to and being kind no matter when.

In the autumn, the wheat field where the Scarecrow was working was no longer cultivated. He had to start a journey and make a living in somewhere else.
Along the way, he has met a sad-looking circus master, an aggrieved little boy, and a crowd of onlookers. He kept changing his role to satisfy everyone's wishes, and he liked the role he played and everything he experienced, but every time he had to leave for various reasons.
Then the winter came, and the lonely scarecrow met people who need more help than he did. Even in difficult situations, he has helped many people, but what will happen to him? Can he see the spring again? Can he find a place that he can happily live forever? This warm story worries us deeply about the scarecrow and also touches us deeply.
