Spookley the Square Pumpkin Review and Competition

Have you ever heard of a square pumpkin?  No, well neither had I until we were sent this lovely DVD from Abbey Home Media.  Grotbags thought this was delightful, she was a bit sad at first when Spookley was being bullied by the round pumpkins but this soon changed.
In a world where the only good pumpkins are round, Spookley is teased because of his square shape.  Shunned by the other pumpkins Spookley is befriended by Edgar, Allan and Poe, three hilarious spiders, who convince him that, square or not, he has a right to be the Pick of the Patch.  But Big Tom and Little Tom, the pumpkin bullies in the patch, continue to tease and taunt Spookley.  Encouraged by kindly Jack Scarecrow and his bat sidekicks, Boris and Bella, Spookley tries his best, but he isn't sure he has what it takes until a mighty storm threatens Holiday Hill Farm.  When the storm blows the round pumpkins across the patch towards the raging river, Spookley realises it is up to him and his square shape to save the day.

This really is a lovely story with lots of songs for the kids to enjoy and also a lesson to be learnt about picking on somebody because they are not the same as you.  Grotbags has watched it lots already and it really is a must for halloween.   I have four copies to giveaway by completing the rafflecopter below.  You can also buy Spookley from all good DVD stockists.
