TUESDAY: Never Race a Runaway Pumpkin

I have shared my love of Roscoe Riley before, but I wanted to highlight the latest book in the series, pefectly timed for fall.

Roscoe is learning about estimating at school, which comes in handy when he has a chance to win a huge pile of books for his school library (and a huge pile of candy for himself). All he has to do is enter a guess on the weight of the giant pumpkin at the bookstore. The only problem is a little black kitten named No Name. Roscoe is convinced No Name is bad luck. Can he get past his superstition and complete his entry?

I thoroughly enjoyed Roscoe's latest adventure, although I thought his reason for being in time out wasn't as clear cut as in other books in the series. Nevertheless, this is another great adventure with an extra sweet ending.
