’tis the Season

October 5, 2014


Ugly Pumpkin season, that is!

As Michael Corleone saidjust when I thought I was out, they pull me back in. I keep saying I’ve quit publishing, but I keep getting requests for school and library visits. How can I say, no? I guess people just love to hear the Ugly Pumpkin this time of year.

Guess I do, too. But its much more fun to hear you read it.

Here are some of my favorite readings from across the internet:

This one is my hands down favorite. A full re-enactment:

This is my other favorite one. Oh the feels:

So if you’re feeling “ugly” this season, go ahead and record your own version today, or visit my online shop and represent!:

  1. My 6yo has spent most of today working on her first book report. She chose to give a written, oral and visual presentation on The Ugly Pumpkin, labeling her poster as, “The best book EVER!” 🙂

    • Hello Candice—Thanks for commenting. This is one of the greatest, most flattering things I’ve ever heard. It is incredibly humbling to know kids are writing book reports about the Ugly Pumpkin. I’ve had the NY Times and Publisher’s Weekly write nice things about my books, but the opinions of a six-year-old is WAY more important to me.—Dave
