When two cats compete in a pumpkin contest, they both win a new friend in this charming story about pumpkins, Halloween, and cats! Mimi and Clara are neighbors. Both cats want to win this fall’s Great Pumpkin Contest. As the competition draws near, Mimi’s pumpkin grows larger... and larger... and LARGER. And soon the pumpkin — and her worries — are bigger than she imagined. Can Clara help Mimi find her way?
With adorable artwork from author and illustrator Angie Rozelaar of Planet Cat Studio, The Great Pumpkin Contest is a perfect Halloween story, and a reassuring reminder that even in a competition, friendship always comes first.
"Mimi spends her time indoors, reading and sometimes wishing she had a friend; Clara prefers being outside, tending her garden, and hosting tea parties with her pals.... After an accident renders one pumpkin into mush, both characters emerge as equally winning in Rozelaar’s winsome mixed-media pictures, which sweetly portray the blossoming of a friendship." — Publishers Weekly
