Rated G, Spookley is a story about a pumpkin who is teased about his unusual shape. He is befriended by three funny spiders who manage to convince Spookley that regardless of his shape, he could be Pick of the Patch on Halloween. Of course, there are a couple of bullies who tease him because of his squareness but Spookley eventually discovers that "it's fine to be round while the weather is fair, but there are times it's better to be a square!"

      No I've never heard of him before. But then I don't have young children. Hopefully it teaches kids what to do when teased or bullied. Well written. Boo
