The Ugly Pumpkin by Dave Horowitz (Illustrator)

I am the Ugly Pumpkin,
as you can plainly see.
Of one hundred thousand pumpkins,
none are quite like me.

The Ugly Pumpkin has waited all through October for someone to take him home, but no one seems to want him. Sure, he’s kind of funny-looking, and doesn’t look like any of the other pumpkins, but why does everyone have to tease him so much? Even the trees make fun of him. So the poor, lonely Ugly Pumpkin leaves the patch in search of a place where he’ll fit in. And sure enough, by the time Thanksgiving rolls around, he discovers the truth about who he is and finds exactly where he belongs—but it’s not at all what he expected! This newer version of the classic Ugly Duckling tale is written with a holiday twist.
