Too Many Pumpkins and Pumpkin Jack. The first story follows a little old lady who detests pumpkins! She can't stand the things… then one day when the BIG pumpkin truck comes rumbling by a gigantic pumpkin rolls off the back and breaks into a million pieces in her yard. I bet you can guess what starts growing the next spring. I LOVE the illustrations in this book!!! It's a treasure for sure. Then with Pumpkin Jack, a little boy carves a pumpkin and LOVES it too much to see it go. He leaves the Jack-o-Lantern in the garden and it rots and sits and… yep, something magical happens the next spring.
You can live these books too if you like. We did. Last year a pile of pumpkins got neglected in the farm yard. Look at our bounty!!! What a treat indeed!
