The Ugly Pumpkin by Dave Horowitz
Rating: 5 Pumpkin cookies
Izze's summary: (She's pretending to be the pumpkin...)
No pumpkins quite like me.
I not getting picked.
I getting tricked!
Trees are miling. (smiling)
They they are throwing apples!
OH MY GOSH!! I A QUASH!! (squash)
I love this book's illustrations and simple, but not cheesy rhyming tone. It's a great story of not fitting in. We read it year round, not just at Halloween or Thanksgiving.
Izze loves: "OH MY GOSH!! I A QUASH!!!"
