Written and Illustrated
By Devin Esch
a time there lived a big, giant orange pumpkin and a little purple pumpkin,
and the little purple pumpkin said to the big orange pumpkin, "I
want to be big, like you, but still be purple. I want to have a yellow
face and a green stem."
The big orange pumpkin said, "How about you go and wish on a star?
"O.K.," said the little purple pumpkin, with a little bright smile popping up on its face.
So he went
to a star and wished, "I wish that I would grow big and purple and
have a yellow face with a green stem."
And that night it happened! The little pumpkin grew!
And all the little orange pumpkins loved him!
