"In time for Halloween comes a book about a fascinating folktale from the Asian country of Bhutan. The Story of a Pumpkin will certainly be a unique addition to your library as it is written not only in English but in Nepali."--Sun News Miami

"The Story of a Pumpkin is most definitely not just the story of a pumpkin. It's a story of national heritage, rooted deep in the farmlands of Bhutan and passed down from generation to generation. It's a story of growth and change, written in both the native language of Bhutanese refugees and the language they are struggling daily to learn. And it's a story of honoring tradition, designed to link these refugees' children to the quickly fading memories of their homeland." "Concord Monitor""
