In the attic, Jed finds an old toy tractor with a miniature farmer in the driver's seat. It seems just like any other toy--but then amazing things happen. First, Jed's bedroom carpet begins to sprout tiny green shoots. Then a pumpkin appears on a vine. It grows and GROWS, until it is big enough to win first prize at the county fair. When Jed returns home with his ribbon, the mysterious farmer is a toy once again . . . or is it? Scott Nash's inventive art, complete with vintage toys, adds a nostalgic feel to the magic.
