The Bumpiest Gourd in the Pumpkin Patch
Gordon wanted to be a Jack-O’Lantern, instead, he was a bumpy gourd.
He shivered, looking around the pumpkin patch.
“Who’s going to choose me?”
Gordon howled, “I’ll never get to be a Halloween decoration! I wish I could change.”
Wilda Witch stirred her cauldron. She heard Gordon crying and went to help.
“Gordon, you must be the best gourd you can be. There’s no other gourd like you.”
Gordon looked around. No other gourd had his bumps or bright colors.
A little boy pointed at him. “Daddy, here’s the one I want.”
Gordon smiled. He will be a Halloween decoration!
