The pumpkin was sad because he was little and nobody picked him. The spider made a web to help him because he was feeling sad. Then three girls and one boy came to get him because he was the spookiest pumkin in the universe. Then the spider was alone.

Precious likes this book because it was a great book. There was a little pumpkin every step of the way. The characters were cool. Precious learned that friends are the best thing you have. She was happy because the pumpkin got a house to live in. She liked when the kids were dressed up as Halloween people. She also liked the pictures.
