Bumper Crop of Fun!

Squashed by Joan BauerFall has begun with chilly nights and autumn leaves and of course, the North Carolina State Fair! One of my favorite books about fairs (beside Charlotte’s Web) is Squashed by Joan Bauer. A witty story set in rural Iowa, 16 year old Ellie has big plans: to grow the biggest pumpkin in the state (and lose 20 pounds). It’s part love story, part comedy with all sorts of fun characters mixed it. Pick it up for a relaxing read this fall.

And if you go to the fair, just be sure to check out who grew the largest  pumpkin at this year’s fair!
