PreSchool-Grade 2–Sam, a raccoon, tours the pumpkin patch at harvest time, hoping to fill her wagon for Gramps. Peeking under vines for the fruit, she quickly counts her way from one to two to four, and then adds four more to her load. Now, "Eight pumpkins thunk-clunk together." As Sam then looks to "double her score," some preschoolers may have trouble with the math and become confused. "Sam stacks eight lumpy pumpkins on the eight-pumpkin clump inside. Sixteen pumpkins slam-jam together. It's one jiggly, wiggly ride!" Soon they are spilling from the wobbling blue wagon, picking up speed as they roll down a hill, out of control. The rhyming text and action-packed illustrations express Sam's predicament as this spirited, energetic tale comes to a happy, surprise ending. A fun fall addition.–Andrea Tarr, Corona Public Library, CA
