Seeds from a plump pumpkin grew into a huge army of roly-poly pumpkins. All it took was a mighty wind to set those pumpkins off on a tumble that would wakeup a sleepy valley town with a rumbling, tumbling surprise.

I have 2 reasons why not to buy this book: (1) It is not funny - My kids who are seven and under do not request this book. I have to make this listen to me read it in October. (2) Bad illustrations - Six pages into it, the farmers fat wife is shown pointing her finger and snarling and dominating and nagging the faultless skinny husband/farmer. The poor farmer looks like I am soo helpless. I will not read this book to my sons, wrong impression for such a young child to have of a wife. The only good thing about the book are the two recipes on the last page!
This is a really funny book which also teaches children how pumpkins grow.
