Today’s book review is Marley and the Runaway Pumpkin by Susan Hill. Here’s what it’s about:
Marley’s family has spent months growing a giant pumpkin to take to the fair. When the big day finally arrives, Mommy, Daddy, Cassie, and Baby Louie try to be extra careful with their blue-ribbon pumpkin. But with a dog like Marley around, being careful isn’t always enough!
This is a cute book that’s perfect for beginner readers. The format of the book reminds me of the books I read when I was learning to read many years ago. There’s lots of crazy things that happen in the beginning, but it all works out in the end. Give it a try.
My Rating: 3 out of 5
