Emily is tired of pumpkins. At school she and her friend Vincetta Louise have been doing pumpkin math, pumpkin field trips, and pumpkin writing. Can't they just carve jack-o-lanterns? But even this ends up being an assignment: the kids have to make pumpkin selfportraits.

Then something happens to Emily's jack-o-lantern, and her friendship with Vinni is tested. The two girls get past their quarrel--but will they ever want to see a pumpkin again?
