The Ugly Pumpkin has waited all through October for someone to take him home, but no one seems to want him. Sure, he’s kind of funny-looking, and doesn’t look like any of the other pumpkins, but why does everyone have to tease him so much? Even the trees make fun of him. So the poor, lonely Ugly Pumpkin leaves the patch in search of a place where he’ll fit in. And sure enough, by the time Thanksgiving rolls around, he discovers the truth about who he is and finds exactly where he belongs—but it’s not at all what he expected!
Dave Horowitz offers up a hilarious new twist on a classic Hans Christian Andersen tale.
