Come see Spookley the Square Pumpkin at the Greentree Festival Parade!  

This is Spookley's first-ever appearance in St. Louis! Come celebrate as we spread the message of bullying prevention through this classic, heartwarming story. 

____________________________________________________________________________

"In a world where the only good pumpkins are round pumpkins, Spookley the Square Pumpkin is often teased by others because of his square shape. Soon 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 on Halloween.

Could a square pumpkin really be the Pick of the Patch ? Not if mean round pumpkins Big Tom and Little Tom can help it. These two bullies tease and taunt Spookley because of his square roots.

Kindly Jack Scarecrow and his bat sidekicks, Boris and Bella, encourage Spookley to keep striving for Pick of the Patch , but he isn t sure he has what it takes until one scary day when a mighty storm threatens his home. As the storm rolls the round pumpkins across the patch towards a raging river, Spookley's square shape helps him save the day."
