Sung by: The Topp Twins
Pictures by: Jenny Cooper
The Dingle-Dangle Scarecrow is just brilliant! I love the illustrations in this version and the Topp Twins do a brilliant performance of presenting the story. I couldn't help singing this as I read it. Now, I have to admit a few thing here:
- I love scarecrows! I have since I first watched the television series Worzel Gummidge. Don't make me explain myself, if you watched Worzel as a child you will understand 😄
- I picked up this book because of the cover - I will always be drawn to good covers.
- The Topp Twins were a draw card, especially as my mother always loved them.
- I love bright, playful picture books.
This has to be the most delightfully illustrated book I have seen for a while. I could sit and read this over and over, not becoming slightly discontented. It is a beautiful book.
If you want a smile put on your face then take a look inside this book.
I'm a dingle-dangle scarecrow
with a flippy-floppy hat,
I can shake my hands like this
and shake my feet like that.
Shake a leg and sing along with The Topp Twins!
Hilariously illustrated by Jenny Cooper
The proof is there in my typing of the description... I had to sing it as I typed - It's an addictive song/story.
