We bought the book four our first grade class. We used it to learn the beginning, middle and end. Some students said &quot; I like it becasue it gives a lot of details.&quot; &quot;I like it becasue I like pumpkins.&quot; I like it because it gave us details about round pumpkins teasing him.&quot; The stpry is about a square pumpkin who gets teased becasue he is different. Then he ends up saving the day. It has a great lesson about not judging by the way something or someone looks. We would recommend this story to kids of all ages. It is a sweet story.

When my son was 2 he and I visited one of my sisters who had this book. He would not stop asking me to read it, so naturally I had to get him his own copy. This is one of his favorite books! It's a good moral and fun to read!

I got this for my 2 granddaughters, ages 1 1/2 and 3 1/2. They both love the book. The illustrations are colorful and eye-catching. The story is very cute. The message of not judging because of being different is illustrated through the story. Both my girls sit to listen to the whole story and frequently bring the book out to be read again.

A great story about the positive aspects of being different.

I bought this book for my two-year-old at Halloween, and she loves it so much we're still reading it EVERY night at bed time - she asks for it by name. The pictures are adorable. There are a couple spots where the author's word choice trips up the rythm, but we improvise. ;) We also got the little stuffed Spookley toy... honestly haven't listened to the CD though.

I fell in love with this book long before I had my own children. I admit I jumped the gun and bought it for my 2 1/2 year old. I think it is a bit much for her to absorb. But she did get a kick out of the colors and shapes of all the pumpkins. I am sure she will grow to love it as I have.

You gotta love Spookley! He's a square, but that's just fine with me. A great book and a wonderful message.

It is so refreshing to see a story that teaches young and old not to judge by the outter cover. I have a pumpkin patch and I read this story to hundreds of students and adults. They love it!!

This book is such a great learning tool for kids. The Connecticut chapter of Operation Respect has really embraced its story of diversity and tolerance. If you like the story you have to check out the new movie version that just came out. Barnes and Noble sells it at the stores.

I bought this book for my grandson, (who at the time was 3). From the day I bought it and sometime past Thanksgiving we read this book (and listened) everyday. He enjoyed Spookley so much, that I cut out a piece of wood and painted it up to look just like Spookley. He was happy to have his very own Spookley hanging in his room. When Fall arrives again this year, you can bet we'll be listening and reading Spookley again. Nanny B-Largo,FL

My first-graders LOVED this story. And it has such a good plot. The CD is great and they also enjoyed passing around the Spookley doll.

Thank you for this wonderful book. Instead of pretending we are all the same, it highlights the differences in people and then teaches readers of all ages to apprecaite and celebrate those differences. This is such a great time to be doing that in this country. I want to give it to everyone I know!

A wonderful story that everyone can enjoy; from the smallest children to the most rebellious of teenagers.. Spookley is an amazing character who shows that one can make a difference even if they are different! I hope that everyone experiences Spookley this holiday season and year round!

What a sweet story! I love Spookley! When is the TV show coming out? Great message for kids of all ages - loved the rhymes. As the saying goes, 'don't judge a book by its cover.' Great to use during Brotherhood Week (February) in addition to Halloween.

This lovely story opens children to the differences in us all while bringing a new and wonderful character to Halloween.Sharing this with our young students was a joy. They truly loved little Spookley!

I found this to be a charming story for children. The strange little square pumpkin saves the day and begins a new day of acceptance on the farm...and in the hearts of the children who hear his story!

I was left disappointed and unsatisfied by this story of a square pumpkin. All this focus on pumpkin exteriors leaves unanswered questions like: What existential conflicts drive the pumpkins to act out? How does Spookley's inner pumpkin feel about his lot in the patch? This incomplete portrait also deprives us of insights into matters such as whether the pumpkins have girlfriends and what they do for a living...Does Spookley's cruel bullying come to an end just before he is made into a tasty pumpkin pie? If so, what lessons can we learn about the futility of life? Perhaps there is even a lesson here about fatalism? Maybe the inevitable sequel will offer some more food for thought...
