About the book:
Pumpker, a little boy pumpkin, desires nothing more than to be adopted by a family to make them happy. Planted as a slim white seed along with his sisters, Plumpalicious and Plumpilina, he finds his wish come true as he grows into a pumpkin.
My Review: 4 Stars
This is such a fun story about the adventures of a pumpkin seed and his sisters. I enjoyed the human feelings and qualities that were given to these seed siblings, as it makes it easier for kids to relate to. I love the excitement that is felt through the pages, as Pumpker longs to belong to a family. Told in first person, the story comes to life as this little seed grows.
I adored the vivid and engaging illustrations and thought they really captured the message of the words. However, there are a lot of words and I wouldn't recommend it for really young readers because their attention spans aren't long enough.
