All three are different and lonely; they don’t quite fit in. As they try to find their places in their world, they realize that they can depend on each other.

The new illustrated children’s book “The Adventures of Ragpatch: Love Lost and Found” (published by Inspiring Voices) offers young readers an engaging and compelling tale of friendship and finding their place in the world that proves, as author Marcia White says, “… there is a place in the world for everyone.”

A scarecrow named Ragpatch is hanging in the field when Mrs. Jacobs takes him down from his perch and begins to walk toward the barn. She becomes distracted and puts him on a bench. Farmer Jacobs sees him lying on the bench, puts him into the back of his truck and takes him to the dump. This is just the start of Ragpatch’s journey!

An excerpt from “The Adventures of Ragpatch”:

“This was a sad day indeed for Ragpatch. Mrs. Jacob carefully laid Ragpatch on the bench in front of the barn, and she went inside to find Farmer Jacob.
A short time later, Mr. Jacob picked up Ragpatch and threw him on top of the pile of rubbish in the back of his truck. He yelled to Mrs. Jacob and said, ‘I will be back from the dump in an hour, then we can go pick some corn.’
‘The dump! He is taking me to the dump! This can’t be happening,’ cried Ragpatch. ‘This is the thanks I get for standing guard over the field for six years–a trip to the dump!’”

Soon Ragpatch meets a one-legged seagull named Mort and a black lamb named Baart. All three are different and lonely; they don’t quite fit in. As they try to find their places in their world, they realize that they can depend on each other.
