New book “Scarecrows and How They Came to Be” from Page Publishing author Susan M. May and Stephen R. May is the cozy story of a farming family and their problems with crows. When they realize that crows are scared by people, but that there is no way to get a person to stand outside all day, Farmer Jones and his wife devise a plan to keep the crows at bay.

My ideas come to me out of a desire to share stories with young minds that are hungry for knowledge.

“Scarecrows and How They Came to Be” is a fun-filled tale about what Farmer Jones does with broomsticks, old clothes, and a bit of hay to create scarecrows that he puts up around his farm to deal with some flying pests.

About her inspiration and writing collaboration Susan says: “I am a retired school teacher with thirty years of service. My ideas come to me out of a desire to share stories with young minds that are hungry for knowledge. I will come up with the ideas for a story, often when I am unable to sleep, and then I run them by Stephen before we agree on working it into our story.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Susan M. May’s zany story contains vivid illustrations, beautiful prose, and tells just what happens when a magical Praying Mantis lands on the sleeve of a scarecrow and things change forever around the old family farm.

Farmer Jones lives on a farm with lots of things to look after. Even with the help he gets from his wife, his four children, and their four barn cats, pesky crows come and eat the Farmer’s crops. This problem becomes just too much to handle until Farmer and Mrs. Jones finally come up with an idea that will alter the way farmers deal with those annoying crows.

Readers who wish to experience this magical work can purchase “Scarecrows and How They Came to Be” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
