Publisher's Summary

The old witch wants a pumpkin pie. First she plants a pumpkin seed. She weeds and waters and waits. A tiny sprout pokes through the ground, and soon a small pumpkin appears. It grows, and it grows some more. When Halloween is only hours away, the witch decides it is finally time to bake the pie. But first she must somehow pull the huge pumpkin off the vine.
With her fun-filled tale, popular children’s author Erica Silverman teaches a gentle lesson in friendship and cooperation. Narrator John McDonough’s lively portrayal of the old witch and each of her spooky companions will have youngsters laughing out loud.

Narration for this version is horrible.

How could the performance have been better?

He was monotone and drab. No child will ever listen to this. I made it through a few lines of the sample and had to turn it off.

Any additional comments?

Amazing book, horrible voice narration.

Will put you to sleep

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I've heard an audio version of this book that was great, it was a catchy song. However in this particular version the man prnounces every word so slowly that if you try to play it for your child they will probably fall asleep before the end of the secound page, maybe the first sentance if they're actually tired to begin with

What did you like best about this story?

I LOVE the story, I bought the adio to go along with the book that I already had. I like the teamwork.

I bought this, spent over an hour trying to download it (couldn't be more complicated), only to discover that this is NOT the audio version of The Big Pumpkin as I know it, with the singing, the screeching "drat!" of the witch and the cute little bat's voice. Instead, there is a monotonous, droning reading of the book. Gee thanks.
