I stared stunned at the unusual and odd-looking scarecrow standing in the middle of the cornfield. Looking from a distance I spotted two of the tallest cornstalks. Suddenly the scarecrow caught my eye. He looked about the same size as the 2 cornstalks put together. As I was looking curiously I spied a little brown mouse nibbling at the scarecrow's short, straight, course, tan-colored hair. The rattling of pots and pans caught my attention. I looked in the direction of the loud commotion and saw a sunflower bandana. As my eyes traveled down the scarecrow's body, I instantly noticed his red and tan checkered shirt. As my eyes traveled lower down the scarecrow's body the rough denim blue jean pants came into sight. All of a sudden I heard the crackle of his newspaper stuffing. A very unexpected jingle came from his yellow bell ear. I gazed into the huge black pupils of his white eyes. As I looked at his eyes I also spotted a violet hat with a bow as red as a rose on his head. On his pumpkin face was a small red button nose and a jagged toothy smile. As a strong wind blew one patch fell off. Then I noticed that he was covered in patches and he would be for years to come.
