This is a cross between a fiction and nonfiction story, with lots of facts about Oregon and growing giant award-winning pumpkins combined with Buster's fictional trip to visit a pumpkin farm. We enjoyed reading this book aloud together.

Buster Rabbit loves to write postcards and a visit to a pumpkin patch gives him plenty to write his family and friends about. A wonderful addition to the Buster Canon.
