When the human races faces extinction, the scarecrows will rise!

Erin loved to build scarecrows. She made a dozen in all. Her Pa showed her how. But he’s dead now. Everyone is dead. Well, almost.

The Many Years Storm ravaged the world, swept Erin’s brother out to sea, and turned her hilltop farm into a rapidly shrinking island. While hope remains, Erin must take her chances on the open ocean to rescue her brother. But she doesn’t have the strength to build a raft and there’s no-one to help except the last and most terrifying of all her scarecrows–Number Twelve.

Erin needs help. Scratch that. Erin needs a miracle.

‘Return to Oz’ meets ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ in Neil J Hart’s award-winning adorably terrifying fantasy adventure where climate change has flooded the earth, destroyed humanity, and ushered in a grave new world!
