About the Author
Beth Ferryis a New York Times bestselling picture book author who lives with her family in New Jersey, where she enjoys all, well, at least three, of the four seasons. Although summer is Beth’s favorite season, autumn always seems to come at exactly the right time. Like summer, most of Beth’s favorite words begin with the letter s, including sunshine, sand, salt, and, of course, scarecrow. Since she plants only pumpkins in her garden, Beth has found that she really doesn’t need a scarecrow, but she would welcome one with open arms. You can learn more at www.bethferry.com.
