Review, San Francisco Chronicle (circ: 329,989), September 30, 2007:
"There’s quite a lot to learn about pumpkins in this book, which even a math-phobe can love, plus there’s kids working together and having their minds opened once their assumptions are trounced. Karas’ stylized illustrations capture the fun of an engaging, hands-on classroom project."
