Publisher's Description

Growing up on Mimi and Papa’s farm, Peter knows a lot about caring for pumpkins. One summer Peter finds a lonely pumpkin all by itself in the field, and with his tender care, the pumpkin flourishes. By autumn, it’s the very best pumpkin of all, and Peter wants to keep it for himself. But when a young girl shows up at the farm in quest of a perfect pumpkin, will Peter pass on his prized pumpkin and gain a friend? From the bestselling creators of Reindeer Christmas and A Snowman Named Just Bob, this enchanting story is filled with the magic of autumn and friendship.

Editorial Reviews

"Moulton and Good team up for a tender autumn story, written in well-turned prose...The gentle story is complemented by glowing, folksy illustrations rendered in watercolors and artfully enhanced with instant coffee and bleach. The simply drawn, wide-eyed characters; country setting; and warm palette echo Joan Walsh Anglund's and Mary Englebreit's cozy worlds. A final page, "Peter's Guide to Growing Your Own Very Best Pumpkin," is a welcome extension for at-home gardeners. -School Library Journal
"The illustrations, rendered in watercolors mottled by instant coffee and bleach, are full of life and happy moments. The iconic symbols of the season—falling leaves, sprightly acorns, ripe apples—help provide an idyllic autumnal setting for the appealing friendship story. Readers will learn a lot about growing pumpkins along the way." - BOOKLIST
