Following on from "The Israeli Magical Scarecrow's Chanukah Adventure", Jaffa, the Israeli Magical Scarecrow, and his friend Moshe the mule decide to join in the Purim festivities. Jaffa sets about making a mask so none of the grown ups will discover his true - secret - identity and heads towards the Great Synagogue in Jerusalem. As the story of Purim is gradually revealed, Jaffa decides to take some hamentaschen out for his friend, Moshe. A suspicious member of the congregation spots what he thinks is someone stealing the children's Purim treats and follows Jaffa demanding to know his true identity. If Jaffa is forced to remove his mask the secret he has promised to keep will be exposed threatening to end the special mission Jaffa, and other Magical Scarecrows around the world, have sworn to carry out. Can Rabbi Yisrael and the great power that brought Jaffa to life do something in time to save the day?
About the Author
The Magical Scarecrows (tm) were originally conceived by best-selling novelist and biographer, Lynn Santer, when she was only nine years old. She rewrote the stories for her sister's children over 20 years later, becoming "Auntie Lynn" to Joshua and Lachlan, her two nephews. Early in 2007, purely as a philanthropic gesture to give back to the societies who have so warmly embraced her adult thrillers and biographies, Lynn elected to have her children's stories professionally illustrated, edited and produced to give away to charities. The concept exploded so rapidly it became necessary to open a commercial arm to support the philanthropic side of the operation. "Auntie Lynn's" celebrity friends enthusiastically endorsed the stories, many recording readings of individual chapters for DVD sales. Today the Magical Scarecrows products have expanded to include an ever-increasing range of merchandise and free games to stimulate children's minds at: www.themagicalscarecrows.com As part of her Magical Scarecrows "Kids Who Read Succeed" program (nominated for the 2008 Pride of Australia Medal) Auntie Lynn also conceived The Magical Scarecrows STARS WITH HEARTS International Celebrity T-Shirt Relay. Almost immediately a galaxy of international superstars enthusiastically jumped on board, among them Jackie Chan, Hugh Jackman, Priscilla Presley, and many, many more.
