Description
In country fairs and weigh-offs across the country, the search for the Great Pumpkin is serious business to a rowdy crowd of obsessive gardeners competing to grow the world's largest pumpkin. With her tongue only a little bit in her cheek, Wall Street Journal editor Susan Warren follows the tumultuous 2006 season through the progress of father-and-son team Dick and Ron Wallace, who strive to bring in the world's first 1500-pound pumpkin despite the ever-present dangers of root rot, foaming stump slime, marauding deer and groundhogs, and strained marriages.

"The final chapters are so tense, and so well-written, that, like with a mystery novel, I covered up the last page so I wouldn't be able to see how it ended. Yes, in a book about pumpkins. You'll never look at your jack-o'-lantern the same way again."Philadelphia City Paper
