Too Many Pumpkins
By Linda White  
Illustrated By Megan Lloyd

Review by: Yvonne Gaudet

     When Rebecca Estelle was a little girl, her parents had money problems, so all they had to eat for their meals was pumpkin! Baked pumpkins, Boiled pumpkins, stewed pumpkins, rotten pumpkins, an entire month of pumpkins! This is why Rebecca Estelle hated pumpkins, even when she was all grown up and had a home of her own. 
      Then one day a pumpkin fell off of the pumpkin truck and onto her front yard with a splat! Rebecca could not even look at the pumpkin! She did everything she could do to get rid of it! She tried to bury the broken pumpkin in the dirt but it soon grew vines. She refused to water and tend to the vines but still they grew. She got out her garden tools and tried to cut and dig the plant out but still they grew! She even stopped using her front door so as not to see the vine that had been growing in the pumpkins place! 
      The following fall Rebecca forgot why she stopped using the front door of her house decided to go ahead and use it. When she rounded the corner of her house there were pumpkins everywhere! She didnít know what to do! Now she had a very hard job, getting rid of those heavy pumpkins. She didnít have the strength to push them into town in the wheelbarrow, in the hopes of giving them away. She would just have to find another way of getting rid of them. 
      This is a great book to read in the fall during harvest time! Not only does it have a funny story line, the illustrations are adorable and by the end of the book you realize, no matter how bad things seem, there is usually a good way to solve your problems if you take the time to think things through! To find out what became of this poor pumpkin-hating lady youíll have to read the book! Your children will really enjoy this one!
