Too Many Pumpkins by Linda White, Megan Lloyd (Illustrator)
Rebecca Estelle, who was poor as a child, hates pumpkins because she
was forced to eat only pumpkins (baked, steamed, boiled, stewed, mashed,
and rotten) because that was all her family could afford for food.
One day, years and years later, old Rebecca had a giant pumpkin
fall off an overloaded truck and smash into her yard. She buried the
sqashed pumpkin to get rid of the mess, and ended up with a HUGE crop
of pumpkins the following fall.
This is an ideal Halloween-time
book for those who want to bypass ghouls and goblins (or any actual
mention of Halloween) and focus on ... pumpkins!
