It is fall, and Thistle the little duck walks by Duck and Goose carrying a very handsome looking pumpkin. Not surprisingly, Duck and Goose start wishing that they too had a pumpkin, so they set off to find one.

Duck and Goose search in a hollow log, in a leaf pile, in the apple tree, in the pond, and on top of the stump, but they don’t find a pumpkin in any of these places. Duck and Goose sit down in the grass. How frustrating it is that they cannot find a pumpkin anywhere.

Young children are going to enjoy sharing in the search for Duck and Goose’s pumpkin, and they will laugh out loud when they see how the story ends.

As with all the other Duck and Goose titles, this delightful little story is full of sweetness and humor.
