A wonderful & whimsical autumn tale!

"Marla Little's pumpkin is rolling away! Can she catch it before it's gone forever? Readers both young and young at heart will delight in this lovely, whimsical tale." -BookBub

On a windy autumn day, Marla Little comes running down the hill, yelling, "Help! My giant pumpkin is rolling away! Onward it goes, rolling and turning, with no sign of stopping! Diddle-dee-doo! Oh, what shall I do?"

A little girl chases her giant pumpkin all over town with some help along the way. Featuring a cast of delightful characters and beautifully illustrated with memorable scenes, you'll love reciting "Diddle-dee-doo! Oh, what shall I do?" together with your little pumpkin.

About the Author

There are two things in this world that Junia Wonders loves doing the most: writing and reading children's stories.

When she's not doing either of these, you might catch her whispering to dragonflies, chasing rolling pumpkins, traveling the world with a giant wheel of cheese, or simply having a cup of tea and cake with a clever little rat, a lonely pony, a couple of riotous retired neighbors, and some kids who, like her, believe that with a little sprinkle of magic, anything is possible!

She sincerely hopes you enjoy reading her books as much as she enjoys writing them. If you like Junia's books, please consider leaving a review.
