Jack the Pumpkin

Once upon a time there was a young pumpkin, let’s call him Jack, who couldn’t wait to break free from the patch!  

He had many adventures but one day he met up with a sharp knife!  Jack was scared and went through a dark spell but he managed to kept a brave face.

He even learned how to happy and began to enlighten others.

Then the seasons changed…  but Jack was prepared and so he was happy as pie!
