Award-winning artist Wendell Minor celebrates America's love for giant pumpkins alongside famous American landmarks and landscapes

Every year, giant pumpkin contests take place at fairs across the country-the 2012 record-holder weighed over a ton! The latest craze is to carve the most enormous pumpkins into racing boats. But what's next? Why not think really big? Award-winning artist Wendell Minor does just that as he imagines larger-than-life pumpkins decorating some of America's favorite places-as immense as the Capitol dome, Mount Rushmore, the Brooklyn Bridge, even the Grand Canyon! This celebration of famous landmarks and landscapes plays with concepts of size and scale and is full of fun facts.

"Minor illustrates this simple text with lush, rich paintings that portray resplendent autumn scenes...This visually stunning book is sure to be a favorite autumn read-aloud."- School Library Journal

"A marvelous example of the way seasonal books can enhance the excitement surrounding a holiday."- Booklist

My children loved how silly the story got as each page the pumpkin got bigger.

I really like this book! Imagine how big your pumpkin could be. Bigger than Mount Rushmore? It has an imagination, big and small, fall, vocabulary theme and is a great storytime book. The illustrations are eye catching, imaginative, and colorful.
