    The Ugly Pumpkin is anything but ugly!

    LOVE LOVE LOVE this book, cannot say enough good things about it for preschool-aged children. I bought this for my daughter for Halloween. The story length was just right for a bedtime book, and she memorized the story quickly. Within days she was reading it together with my husband and I, and we were all laughing out loud. It is a good lesson. I will purchase this book most likely for my nephew and other preschool children next year for Halloween or even Thanksgiving, it works for both.

    Cute

    Cute! A quick read that will end with you saying ... cute. It's nothing fantastic and certainly not a classic Halloween story but "cute".
