The Biggest Pumpkin Ever Author:Steven Kroll, Jeni Bassett (Illustrator) Once there were two mice who fell in love with the same pumpkin. Clayton took care of it during the day. Desmond took care of it at night. The two mice didn't know about each other. And the pumpkin grew and grew and grew into THE BIGGEST PUMPKIN EVER!
This is a great story for reading to young childen. My class loved the story of the house mouse and the field mouse both caring for the same pumpkin. Both were working towards a goal and very dedicated. Their hard work pays off when the pumpkin grows from the small size to bigger than a house. Clayton cares for the pumpkin during the day and Desmond does the same at night. So there is some repetition for the readers. When the mice meet they come to a compromise so each can enter their competition. I highly recommend this for anyone looking for an autumn or Halloween themed book.
