One of Charlie Crows best friends is Sam Straw the Scarecrow, this may seem a little strange as scarecrows are supposed to scare crows away, but Sam doesn’t enjoy doing this and Charlie is an exceptionally brave crow so they became good friends.
The two friends enjoy talking about their adventures, Charlie tells Sam about the winds and all things to do with the sky and Sam tells Charlie about his adventures on his walks through the country side.
One day as Charlie Crow was flying over the Wide Lake he thought he would visit Sam to see how he was doing. As Charlie flew closer to the Lower Field he looked for Sam in his usual place but couldn’t see him anywhere, “That’s unusual” thought Charlie, “Sam never leaves his field unattended in the day”, so he began to search all over the field for his friend.
Charlie looked by the hedges, in between the crops and even round the barns and the farmhouse but he couldn’t see Sam anywhere.
Just as he was giving up hope of finding his friend Charlie heard a voice crying “Charlie, Charlie help me, I’m up here in the Oak Tree”, Charlie Crow peered up through the leaves and sure enough there was Sam laying flat against one of the branches trying to keep his balance so as not to fall off.
“Sam ?, I never thought of you as the tree climbing type” said Charlie, “I’m not” came the reply “The North Wind blew past at such a speed this morning that I got blown up into this tree, will you help me get down ?”, “Of course I will Sam” and without another word Charlie set off for the Farmhouse to get a ladder and within no time Sam was back to his rightful1 place in the field.
“Thank you Charlie Crow” said Sam once he’d calmed down after his ordeal, “I think I would have been stuck up that tree till it fell down if you hadn’t have saved me”, then the two friends settled down and talked late into the afternoon of their adventure that day.
