MR. AND MRS. VANATOLI AND THE MAGIC PUMPKIN SEEDS is a Halloween picture book for children age 2-7. Mr. Vanatoli is a practical man. When his loving wife asks him to plant some strange seeds, he replies, "Pigs and corn, corn and pigs, that's what I know and that what I grow."

5.0 out of 5 stars The You Can Do Anything Mindset 22 Oct 2012
By Kathy W
This Halloween book is colorful and nicely illustrated and was designed for children ages 2 - 7. It was inspired by the Venetucci Pumpkin Farm in Colorado Springs, famous for its large pumpkin patch and annual Pumpkin4kids give-away program.

The story begins with a hard-working couple tending their pig and corn farm. While the wife wanted to try to grow other things, the husband refused to change (and grow). He was in the mindset that since pigs and corn were all they knew, that was all they were capable of doing.

Some pumpkin seeds came in the mail and accidentally got spread in the field. Overnight, like magic, the vines and pumpkins had grown everywhere, so the wife began canning and baking. The pumpkins kept growing and the wife kept cooking. In a few days, there were so many pumpkins, the couple began to give them away. With still more pumpkins (now 40 a day) the wife began to make jack-o-lanterns. All the while, she remained in a positive mindset, that there were endless possibilities. The husband, who refused to change before, now realized "the possibilities were endless" and began to see the couple really could do anything they could envision.

This is a nice little story that puts out the very important 5-star message that you are only limited by the limitations you place upon yourself. A great message for the children.

4.0 out of 5 stars We know what we grow 19 Oct 2012
By Amanda Richards - Published on Amazon.com
Another pumpkin-themed story, this one is about a farmer and his wife (ee-i-ee-i-oh!) who rear pigs and grow corn and absolutely nothing else. While Mrs. Vanatoli is open to change, her husband continually reminds her of their areas of expertise and specialization.

While she has visions of turnips, carrots, potatoes and peas, he is resolute that pork chops and corn are all that they'll ever need. However, one night, under a magical full pumpkin moon, with fresh breezes gently blowing, all this changes, and the possibilities become endless.

A charming story with beautiful full-colored illustrations, this will delight readers of all ages.
