Best selling author, Lynn Santer (aka ‘Auntie Lynn’ ) of The Magical Scarecrows has published three delightful scarecrow books for kids -- exciting thrillers that educate even as they entertain.

Sales of these books support Auntie Lynn’s ever expanding charity effort. Her KIDS WHO READ SUCCEED program supplies free books from the original series to any bona fide charity who requests them.  Books have been sent on request to such diverse places as:

-- The Pyjama Foundation, who provide readers for children in foster care who traditionally have lower academic achievement and a high percentage end up in jails before they are 16 years old as a result (Patron: Bryce Courtney)

-- A Word Without Books, a program run out of Sydney to help put books into the hands of Aboriginal communities.

-- An orphanage in Bali.

-- A Christian mission in India

-- Schools depleted of reading material in Zimbabwe

- The Leukaemia Foundation’s children

-- Paradise Kids in Crisis

-- And so on… and on… the list is actually quite extensive.

The Magical Scarecrows: Books One and Two
By Auntie Lynn
Light social, historical and cultural lessons for kids aged 5 to 11

Mother Earth breathed life into two Magical Scarecrows so they could do what we humans are largely not doing -- looking after the planet, the environment and our wildlife.

They embark on a series of daring adventures to rescue their animal friends from bushfires, fireworks night, slithering snakes and thieving magpies.

However, each Magical Scarecrow believes he is the only one of his kind on earth and hide their secret sadness. When migratory bird friends learn of their plight they begin a quest to find their straw-filled saviors another living scarecrow but, from opposite sides of the world, how might these two marvelous magical beings ever be able to meet?

By Auntie Lynn and Catherine Chapman

To help, Mother Earth brings one fruit or vegetable to life in each country where there lives a Magical Scarecrow for one night each to join them on their adventures! What a special magical surprise! Would you like to know what happens?
