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

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.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2–In this story that echoes Hans Christian Andersen's The Ugly Duckling, a very odd-looking pumpkin encounters harsh rejections, mainly from creatures associated with Halloween. The book contains an inventive, amusing, and surprising compilation of words and illustrations. The minimal text is rhymed, sometimes settling comfortably into a quiet corner of the riotously colorful illustrations and occasionally entering into the vivid tableau. Some children might find the wild depictions of skeletons and the creepy sneers of gnarled trees alarming, but the bright colors, bouncy rhymes, and engaging pumpkin (that turns out to be something else altogether) combine to make this a charming book on the whole, with a happy and surprising ending.–Susan Weitz, formerly at Spencer-Van Etten School District, Spencer, NY
