Rebecca Estelle, an old woman who has hated pumpkins ever since she was a girl and her family had nothing else to eat, finds herself with a full crop of them.
I enjoyed reading this relatable story. Have you ever eaten something so often that you got sick of it and never wanted to eat it again? How do you feel in the fall when all of the items in the grocery store start having pumpkin flavoring in them? Do you like when this happens or not? Some fun questions to think about as you read this story.

She lives with her husband on a farm in Pennsylvania, where she raises sheep, chickens, and cows. Some of the rabbits from her vegetable garden have even been kind enough to allow Ms. Lloyd to sketch them as models for this book.</p>
