Review

"...a delightful, informative story that I'm sure your family will be able to enjoy and talk about for some time." --5 Minutes for Books, October 16, 2008

"In Search of the Perfect Pumpkin" contains interesting facts about the history of pumpkins (they have been grown for food in America for over 5000 years and were unknown in Europe before Columbus) pumpkin growing tips, and a recipe for pumpkin pie. The imaginative, slightly loopy illustrations add to the enjoyment of the book's intended audience, children ages 4-8. "In Search of the Perfect Pumpkin" is the perfect fall harvest children's book, carrying the interest through the spring growing season into the fall. --The Midwest Book Review, Children's Bookwatch (July 2009), "The Picturebook Shelf"

"...a delightful, informative story that I'm sure your family will be able to enjoy and talk about for some time." --5 Minutes for Books, October 16, 2008

My son loves this book. Once I opened it, I thought..."Oh, this isn't going to keep his attention. It is too long." Boy, was I ever wrong. I can't tell you what he love about this book. It could be the colorful pictures, the adventure the Pucci family goes on to find the perfect pumpkin or the way my husband reads it with the various voices. All I know is he loves this book. He loves it so much we are tired of reading it to him. Another fun thing this book offers is pumpkin facts on every page. Definitely a fun book for the autumn season. --"A Mommy Talks" Blog
