Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
Any time of year is a good time for an ecological tale, especially when fun is prominent and didacticism is missing. Ray's Pumpkins has at its center a man with a large heart who loves a field and cries when he views development on the horizon. The man and the land together decide to grow pumpkins and the man devises a wild and wonderful scheme to promote pumpkins all over the world. They succeed and so does the book with the soft orange hues of Root's art and the messages that come from the man and the land rather than the author.
