This is a sweet little story about patience, love, and friendship. It is also a story about the cycle of life as the pumpkins are cultivated, harvested, and the seeds sown to see the cycle repeat itself. The text by Mark Kimball Moulton is complemented by the lovely illustrations by Karen Hillard Good. The illustrations are in lush fall colors, and the pages with their muted colors and 'stained' effect lend this book a vintage look. A perfect fall read!
The ink and watercolor art is aged with coffee stains, and the deliberate curlicues throughout lend a country-kitchen feel to this feel-good fall story. The art reminded me very strongly of Mary Englebreit with just a touch of Tomie DePaola. Full-color spreads are occasionally punctuated with illustrated borders featuring ladybugs, roses, bees and oak leaves.
There is an addendum in the back, with advice for growing your own pumpkin. Families who are looking for a seasonally appropriate, yet totally not-at-all-scary story for Halloween will be very pleased with this offering.
