A delightfully picturesque musical for all seasons, based on the the picture book 'Tattybogle' by Sandra Horn, which features a lovable scarecrow. Ideal for KS1 and/or lower KS2. Includes simple choreography.
Tattybogle the scarecrow has a head full of straw and cheerful thoughts. The rain is his music, the birds and animals his friends and the wind is his dancing partner. Nothing gets him down; he loves everything – even the crows! Then one day the Autumn wind is so strong that Tattybogle is blown to pieces. All that is left of him is an old stick, but he never loses hope. His optimistic approach to life is rewarded, as Spring brings him a glorious new start: Tattybogle's stick takes root and and he becomes a tree!

Review by Bosham Primary School
Year 1 and 2 performed a play on Tuesday and Wednesday called Tattybogle! It was the BEST show ever!!! All the children sang beautifully and produced a brilliant show!!!
Review by Shirley Barrell - D. Head, East Sussex
Tattybogle was great fun to rehearse and perform. The songs were easy to learn and very appealing. There are good cross-curricular links making it ideal to perform in either spring or autumn.
Review by Elaine Duffus - Music Specialist, Aberdeenshire
All around the NE of Scotland, children are peering round farm gates and walls looking for this likeable scarecrow, Tattybogle. Has to be the most charming musical I have ever used in schools and loved by staff and pupils alike. Unmissable!

Review by Jeanette Verster - Performing Arts Teacher, New Zealand
It's a great story, the children loved it. The show's many groups make it ideal for high participation performances. I have used Starshine Music materials with great success before and I would recommend 'Tattybogle' to any school.
Review by Lynette Gridley - Teacher, Berkshire.
The music is superb. The musical is totally appropriate for infants and it's very adaptable. The book lent itself to so many themes and there is scope to cover many subjects.
