What do José and his brothers do with a mountain of pumpkins? An EXPLOSION of pumpkins? Step into Pumpkin Town and see!

About Katie McKy

See more books from this Author
As a teacher, Katie McKy saw many children make mistakes. She also saw many children want to make their wrongs right. Had she allowed it, some kids would have worked all night to fix their mistakes. As a gardener, Katie once planted too many pumpkin seeds. She saw that a good thing can be a bad thing when the vines start to grow every which way. So Katie twined what she learned from children with what she learned in the garden to write Pumpkin Town! Today, Katie writes full-time in Wisconsin and is careful to plant only a few fine seeds. Pablo Bernasconi is an award-winning graphic designer who was born in Buenos Aires. Pablo loves things that grow: puppies, trees, hair, knowledge, children, clouds, and pumpkins! His artwork has been published in picture books, magazines, and newspapers all over the world. He lives in Patagonia, Argentina--still a wild place where nature can often over-rule humans' attempts to control it.
