Halloween is fast approaching and little Sylvie Ann is looking for the biggest, fattest pumpkin in the patch. But before she and her grandfather can carve it, Sylvie Ann must somehow get it home.
he little girl decides the best course of action is to roll the large pumpkin and that works until she finds a hill in her way. Before you can say
, the pumpkin rolls down the slope scaring the farm animals and upending a man carrying a bucket of whitewash.
fter she apologizes for the mayhem the runaway pumpkin causes, Sylvie Ann gets on with the task of carving the pumpkin and setting it out for the neighbors to see. And, when Halloween is over the cute little girl collects the pumpkin's seeds to plant the following year.
gentle story with attractive illustrations,
will be a book you'll want to share each year with family members. This sturdy board book
edition will stand the test of time and heavy use.
