By Mackenzie Haley, Illustrator. A delightful, heart-warming story about a perky pumpkin who just wants to fit in this Halloween. Halloween is approaching and it’s time for the kids to pick out their pumpkins. The pumpkins have been looking forward to this all year, and are excited to meet their new owners. But when everyone is being chosen, there is one pumpkin who feels left out. He is the smiliest and happiest pumpkin of them all, but of course nobody wants a happy pumpkin on the scariest, spookiest night of the year! Will this little pumpkin find a home in time for Halloween? Adults and children will love to read aloud and follow the story of this perky pumpkin as he hopes to find the perfect family. With adorable and colorful illustrations, The Happy Pumpkin will make a wonderful addition to any Halloween-lover’s bookshelf while teaching little ones an important life lesson about not judging others based on what they look like. For ages 1 and up.
