I’ve looked everywhere online for a book I read as a child. It would have been published in the 50s or early 60s; I read it when I was in the first to third grades which would have been 1964-1967 or 1968. I’ve forgotten the title and author but remember the story line vividly. The protagonist, a scarecrow, was stuck in a garden or field and wanted more than anything to be free. When autumn came and the garden had been harvested, the farmer began to burn all of the refuse, including the scarecrow who, at last, was turned into smoke and was finally free to drift through the air. It’s a beautiful book and I’ve searched for so long but am limited when I can’t come up with a title or anything else to aid me in my search. If you could find the book, I’d be very grateful and would even be happy if you could come up with a title and author.
