This is a great book explaining that being different is not at all bad. In the beginning, Spookley didn't want to e square, he wanted to be a circle like the other pumpkins. The other pumpkins tease Spookley for being square. Until one day the other pumpkins needed spookley by saving them as they would roll and he didn't. Spookley saves the other pumpkins by blocking the fence and helped them to stay put. Since Spookley saves the day the other pumpkins looked at him differently. They didn't look at Spookley the same ever again. This made Spookley glad to be a square Pumpkin again. This book teaches you to not judge a book by its cover. Great book for kids to understand that being different can be good. ( )

In this book, Spookley, a square pumpkin, is made fun of. However, his shape soon comes in handy when he saves the day.

This book is a good example of myth or legend because the story of the square pumpkin is a legend of how a square pumpkin saved all of the round pumpkins one night, even though all of the round pumpkins had made fun of him for being a square. The plot of the story is to show the reader the moral of the story, which is another characteristic of the legend genre. The moral of the story was to not judge a book by it's cover, or a pumpkin by its shape, because you never know when their differences may come in handy. ( )

The story of a square pumpkin trying to fit in. A great lesson about accepting differences.

This is a cute tale of a pumpkin who is a little different from the others. He is self conscious about his unusual shape, but ends up saving the day with his unique characteristics! I really enjoyed reading this book to my students and they enjoyed it as well!! ( )
