The Scarecrow Princess

by Federico Rossi Edrig. St. Louis, MO: Lion Forge, 2017

A cross between fantasy and folklore, this is a story of Morrigan who is forced to move with her author Mother and Brother to a remote village to research the legend of the King of Crows and the Scarecrow Prince for a book they're writing. Morrigan, reluctantly forced to move, finds finds herself reluctantly involved in the sinister secrets of this legend.

Creative uses of text balloons help explain who's talking (the King of the Crows, The Scarecrow Prince, or Morrigan and the other non-mythical characters).

NOTE: there is some nudity and mature content. Starred reviews from Publishers Weekly, School Library Journal, Horn Book, and Booklist.
