Once upon 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!

THE END.
