Spookley is a special pumpkin: while all of the other pumpkins in the patch are round, Spookley is square! It's hard to be different. The other pumpkins tease him for his unusual shape. Spookley can't join in with them as they roll merrily about. All Spookley can do is sit on his flat bottom and watch them have fun.

The day before Halloween a fierce storm hits and all the regular pumpkins are blown this way and that. When the fence breaks they are all in danger of being blown out into the bay! Spookley knows what he must do. His square shape will be a perfect fit for the hole in the fence. Can this brave little pumpkin make his way to the fence in time and save the others from floating away?

This winning story celebrates differences and will engage young readers with its lively illustrations and heartfelt ending.
