There was once a small pumpkin
in a great big field,
A very small green pumpkin
the size of an apple.
The little pumpkin dreams that one day he will grow up to be a fierce yellow pumpkin who scares the field mice, like the scarecrow does.
Then one day in autumn, three children come to his field, and he unexpectedly gets the chance for his dream to come true. . . .
This long-lost treasure from the author of Goodnight Moon has never before been published. Who Better to bring it to life than Caldecott Medalist Richard Egielski? His rich, warm illustrations are the perfect complement to the inimitable words of Margaret Wise Brown.
