The Great Pumpkin Contest

(2) K-3 In preparation for Cat County's Great Pumpkin Contest, cat Mimi produces one giant pumpkin, while cat Clara grows many beautiful little ones. Ultimately, this mellow autumn tale's straightforward text conveys that kindness and teamwork yield the best fruit of all. Playful pastel-toned, mixed-media illustrations reward viewers with literary and feline references ("I Want My Cat Back"; "The Power of Meow").
