A bouncy rhyme and delightful artwork bring this pumpkin fair to life. The young narrator is ecstatic to be at the local pumpkin fair, where pumpkins of every size are on displayand that’s not all! There’s pumpkin bowling, a pumpkin pull, and every sort of food you can imagine made from the orange stuff, from ice cream to stew. . . . Christelow’s good-natured watercolor-and-ink illustrations are filled with things to look at and laugh about, including a marching band in pumpkin suits. Keep this book around to read for autumn story hoursbut you might want a piece of pumpkin pie when you’re done.”ALA Booklist
Christelow’s jubilant illustrations in watercolor and pen and ink add to the general atmosphere of gaietyeverywhere readers look, families are interacting happily and having fun. . . . Halloween is never mentioned, so the book could be used to celebrate the harvest season in general. Of course, it will also serve as a good non-scary Halloween story.”School Library Journal

A rather ordinary pumpkin wins a prize for "the best-loved pumpkin at the fair, the best-loved pumpkin anywhere."
