The Legend of Spookley, the Square Pumpkin by Joe Troiano, Susan Banta (Illustrator)
Spookley was different.
He was odd,
he was rare.
Spookley the pumpkin wasn't round-
A very unique pumpkin delivers a special message. The story is about being different and how our differences should be celebrated. Spookley was different from the other pumpkins and felt bad about being square. Until one day, his squareness saves saves the other pumpkins by blocking a hole in the fence so pumpkins couldn't roll away in a bad storm. Colorful illustrations accompany the rhyming text.
