mike nick coverRemember the excitement of visiting Grandpa? If Grandpa lives in he country and has a very large pumpkin patch, then the excitement is all the greater. Mike and Nick love to visit their Grandpa and today the visit is special because they are going to choose their very own pumpkins.

Mike and Nick are astounded at the size of the pumpkin patch, and also by the many pumpkins they see. It is not easy to find the PERFECT PUMPKIN but after much searching, they finally find the right one for each of them. The dogs, of course, help as much as they can - Sevvy by jumping over and over the pumpkins, and Jake by lying down and watching Sevvy and the boys.
