A fable-type story, the boy Bongani is too small for school and has to help in the fields keeping animals out of the crops. He decides he needs a scared crow to go with the scarecrow to help him, but he learns he needs to be very crafty to out-clever the crow. The Zimbabwean born author brings the story to us supported by illustrations by Helene Magisson and a feel for the culture and environment.
