Did that pumpkin just quack?
  wichitafriendsschool | Mar 25, 2016 |
In a world filled with pumpkin stories every autumn, do we really need another one? When it's Pumpkin Trouble, the answer is a resounding 'YES! And enjoy this book in all the other seasons, too!'. Here's the sketch: Duck is going to make a jack-o-lantern. Unfortunately, the pumpkin he chooses to hollow out is bigger than he. He falls inside, twists around, and ends up looking to his friends Mouse and Pig like a Pumpkin Monster. This story moves along as speedily and funnily as Duck's little legs propelling his pumpkin shell. I won't tell you how it ends; you'll be glad you just read it yourself so you can enjoy firsthand the witty words and bright pictures. ( )

Book description
This is a great story for children especially that it shows how to build courage.  In this particular story Duck was trying to carve a pumpkin for Pig and Mouse.  When he was pulling out the seeds, he fell in and could not take the pumpkin off of himself.  He started walking around and Mouse and Pig found him but thought he was a "Pumpkin Monster."  Just then they run away and so does Duck when "Smash" Duck runs into the barn and smashes up the pumpkin.  Mouse and Pig cheer for Duck for battling with the "Pumpkin Monster" and thus it builds up Ducks courage and decides to celebrate by carving a Jack-o-Lantern.
