As a child, Rebecca Estelle's family spent a month eating
pumpkins when they couldn't afford anything else.
Afterwards, Rebecca Estelle swore she would never eat, or
even look at, another pumpkin again. "Until..." fate
stepped in a sent a plague of pumpkins into her garden.
Reader's will love how Rebecca Estelle tries to get rid
of the problem, and then how ignoring it makes her worst
nightmares come true. But, in the end, Rebecca Estelle
finds joy in the pumpkins (though she still never eats one).

5.0 out of 5 stars Not your ordinary Halloween story 4 Nov 1998
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
A delightful lesson in what to do when life hands you too many pumpkins -- and you hate pumpkins!! In no way preachy or ponderous, this book shows what happens when you ignore a problem, and has lovely ideas of how to make the best of a bad situation, how to share and give to others.
Too Many Pumpkins is well-written, entertaining and fun to read aloud.

5.0 out of 5 stars Too Much Fun! 29 Oct 2000
By Christy Bagasao - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Linda White shows a side of life that people do not often see nowadays--the optimistic approach to life. What do you do when your childhood experiences have led you to, quite frankly, hate pumpkins, and through an odd twist of circumstances you end up with a houseful of them?! Make the best of it! Too Many Pumpkins is a wonderful (and educational--watch the seeds grow!) Autumn/Halloween book without the spooks and goblins that aren't always suitable for a bedtime story. This is a delightful read with beautiful illustrations that your children will love, and you won't mind reading it "just one more time." Go ahead--read it with your little Pumpkin...and then bake a pumpkin pie together.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pumpkins Galore! 21 Aug 2002
By Terrie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Rebecca Estelle has a problem on her hands. Rebecca Estelle is a white-haired woman who lives with her calico cat Esmeralda. She hates pumpkins because when she was a youngster her family was poor and ALL they had to eat was pumpkins. She doesn't even like to think about them. One day a truck loaded with pumpkins loses a pumpkin that smashes in Rebecca Estelle's yard and sends seeds flying every which way. When plants spring up she refuses to tend to them and just ignores them all summer long. She won't even go over near the space where the pumpkin smashed. In autumn, much to her surprise there is a huge pumpkin patch just filled with beautiful big orange pumpkins. At first she is horrified. There is a SEA of pumpkins! She uses her clever ingeniuity and her practical good sense to figure out a wonderful way to not only use up the pumpkins, but to attract many people to help her share the pumpkins. She ends up with a delightful party atmosphere, sharing a happy Halloween and she patches up her differences with pumpkins. The illustrations are utterly charming, brightly colored and filled with warm and homey country scenes. The feeling of autumn's hazy nostalgia and the wonderful aromas of harvest baking almost leap up out of the pages. Parents will enjoy reading this one every year at Halloween and the kids will love it for years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars My girls LOVE this book! 10 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
With a captivating and amusing storyline and brilliant illustrations, "Too Many Pumpkins" is a family favorite. It will delight the youngest reader and Mom and Dad will enjoy reading it over and over! It is a wonderful introduction to the world of gardening and the Halloween season while avoiding many of the things young children may find frightening about that holiday. Truly a treasure!

5.0 out of 5 stars Never too many reads! 5 Jan 2004
By TLP - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a book that stays with you even when you are not reading it! My older son has adored this book for years and now my younger son is requesting it as well... I think I could probably recite it from memory at this point! We are often caught in the rhyme of "pumpkin muffins, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin pies..." when found in the kitchen or picking pumpkins or other activities that remind us of this book! Definately a well read book in our house - and a keeper for the library for years to come! Oh, and amongst the enjoyment are heart-felt lessons to learn and grow on.
