I am the Ugly Pumpkin, as you can plainly see.
Of one hundred thousand pumpkins, none are quite like me.

Who could’ve guessed that this book about rejection and lonliness would become my very best seller? Some have even used the word, “classic”. Now available as Scholastic and Puffin paperbacks.

Note to young readers: Can you find the “sneaky eyes” hiding on each spread? (Hint: Look closely)
Note to art majors: Can you find homages to two famous masterworks? (Hints: E. Munch. L. DaVinci)


Published 2005 by G.P. Putnam’s Sons,
an imprint of Penguin Young Readers Group, USA.
