The leaves fall, the wind blows, and one little pumpkin seed tries and tries to be scary. But he doesn't scare anyone . . . not the snowflakes in winter, not the bees in spring, not even the watering can!

The wind tells him to be patient--he'll be scary soon enough. But waiting is hard. Will the little seed ever be really, truly scary?

This simple story is more than a fun Halloween read--it is a heartwarming tale perfect for any child who can't wait to grow up.

My 2yr old loves this book! It is perfect for starting the discussion of Halloween without anything scary, but covers the fun in scaring.
If your little one is calm enough to wait for you to turn the page or a cue to the page then your little one will likely enjoy this story.

My 2 year old daughter absolutely loves this book. The illustrations are beautiful and it is a fun and easy read with a cute story about patience and about how a plant grows.
