“Once there was a pumpkin.
It was large. It was very large.
The farmer was proud
of his very large pumpkin.
He was so proud of that pumpkin,
that sometimes he talked to it.
“Pumpkin,” he said. “Grow!
Grow, grow, grow!”
And that’s just what the pumpkin did.
Before long, it was time to pull
that pumpkin off the vine.
But the farmer could not pull it off.
The farmer pulled and pulled.
But he could not pull it off.
Now the farmer had a wife named Bell.
“Bell!” he called.
“Come help me with this pumpkin!”
So Bell came running.
Bell was big and strong.
But she could not pull
that stubborn pumpkin off the vine.
So the farmer pulled the pumpkin.
And his wife pulled the farmer.
Together, they pulled and pulled.
But they could not pull
that stubborn pumpkin off the vine...
