Pumpkin Town! (Or, Nothing Is Better and Worse Than Pumpkins)

by Katie McKy Illustrated by Pablo Bernasconi

One pumpkin makes a tasty pie. Two pumpkins can be carved into grinning jack-o'-lanterns, and a couple hundred more make for a decent pumpkin patch. Gather one thousand pumpkins and you'll have a grand fall festival.
But what happens when a town has an accidental abundance of pumpkins?

What do Jose and his brothers do with a mountain of pumpkins? An EXPLOSION of pumpkins? Step into Pumpkin Town and see!
