Overview
Halloween was coming. For all the pumpkins in the pumpkin patch this was the night they had been waiting for all year long. For Halloween meant they would become Jack-O-Lanterns and bring fun and joy to boys and girls everywhere. But not Pumpy the Pumpkin. He was not going to be a Jack-O-Lantern, even though it was his dream. You see, Pumpy was different. While all the other pumpkins where large and round, Pumpy was long and somewhat squished. The other pumpkins laughed and made fun of him. They said he didn't look like them. He looked more like an orange eggplant. He was an UGLY PUMPKIN...and could never be a Jack-O-Lantern. No, they said, he could never be one of them. Never. But on this Halloween night...everything was about to change...
