Mark has a pesky predicament: after planting a beautiful garden, he finds that local pests keep coming to nibble on his vegetables! Thinking a scarecrow might be a good solution, Mark crafts one from materials he finds at home. He submits his handiwork to the criticism of his friends who are not as appreciative of Mark’s hard work as he feels appropriate. The friends change the scarecrow to make it scarier. Will it be scary enough to frighten the crows away? Perhaps the scarecrow is not so scary after all.
