The Bumpy Little Pumpkin

The Bumpy Little Pumpkin

by Margery Cuyler Illustrated by Will Hillenbrand

Little Nell has found the perfect pumpkin for Halloween. It's bumpy and little and lumpy — and just right. Then, her bossy sisters, BIG Sarah and BIG Lizzie, tell her it's too small and ugly to make a good jack-o'-lantern. But with a little help from her friends Reindeer, Hare, and Bear Cub, Little Nell shows them all that BIG ideas sometimes come in small packages — bumps and all.
