Product Details


“Inventive, amusing, and surprising. . . . Riotously colorful illustrations. . . . The bright colors, bouncy rhymes, and engaging pumpkin combine to make this a charming book . . . with a happy and surprising ending.”–School Library Journal

“Pumpkin pickers pooh-pooh the orange, barbell-shaped ‘ugly pumpkin’ in October. Fortunately, November brings the lonesome veggie some new friends and an epiphany. . . . Expressive hand-lettered pages convey strong emotions.”–Publishers Weekly

“Plenty of visual flash.”–Kirkus Reviews

“Simple rhyming text. . . . Children familiar with the story of the Ugly Duckling will recognize the parody here. Horowitz creates the mood with a wide range of expressions.”–Children’s Literature
