Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jan Lieberman
Pumpkins - stewed, baked, steamed, mashed, boiled roasted, and rotten. No more pumpkins! And so it was the Rebecca Estelle never allowed a pumpkin into her home until... the day an enormous pumpkin falls off a truck and smashes into her yard. In a few months those "slimy pumpkin smithereens sprout up into a sea of pumpkins." Her solution of what to do with them is sure to bring on the giggles. Count the pumpkins in the book. The winner receives a package of pumpkinseeds. But beware! 1997 (orig.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-Golden autumn hues cast their warm glow throughout this humorous harvest tale. Rebecca Estelle, having survived on various pumpkin dishes during her poor childhood, hates them so much that when a pumpkin accidentally falls into her yard, she shovels dirt over it so she won't have to see or think about it again. In spite of all her efforts to the contrary, she is "rewarded" with a yard full of bright orange globes the following fall. Not willing to let the windfall go to waste, she once again prepares the dishes she detested as a child, carves jack-o-lanterns from the remaining pile, and then thoroughly enjoys the fellowship of her neighbors lured by the glow of the mischievous carvings. And, of course, Rebecca Estelle saves seeds for next year's planting. Lloyd snuggles White's text into her rich watercolor-and-pen illustrations. Nature's determined bounty spills from formal borders and is tinged with just the right touch of realism to contrast with the cartoonlike Rebecca Estelle and her feline companion. The vocabulary and sentence structure calls for solid independent readers, but the large horizontal format packed with engaging fun makes this title an ideal harvest/Halloween read-aloud.-Claudia Cooper, Ft.

    The top story every night!

    My daughter, and myself, really enjoyed this story so much. My daughter learned so much from it too, like how seeds grow into pumpkins and that was very entertaining for her. The book kind lets you go into and and makes you feel like you are experiencing it yourself. Very well done! :o) Jennifer

    Great for all ages!!!

    This was a hit with all three of my children; ages 9,4 and 2. The illustrations are soft and detailed making any "busy" listener able to sit still. Even if you don't "do" Halloween, it is a great book to read to your kids because the focus is on people and giving, not on the holiday. It really only mentions Halloween briefly. A great fall treat of a book.
