Zach and Zoe live in the beautiful town of Berryville, a place where they can go out and pick extra big berries. But they can't go past the willow trees because they may meet the giants that live on the mountain. One day their mom sends Zach and Zoey to pick berries for a pie, and she warns them about the willow trees. But as they picked more berries, the higher up the mountain they went to where the berries were much larger. They were so tired from climbing the mountain that the two children lay down and fell asleep, only to be awakened by a loud thump. Zoey and Zach were so scared they jumped into a giant pumpkin. How will they ever get off the mountain alive?

The Burping Pumpkin by Steph Alexis is an adventurous fairytale that your child is sure to love. Zoey and Zach are cute characters that will steal your heart from the beginning. The Burping Pumpkin from beginning to end is full of excitement and fun, and the ending to the story really took me by surprise. The illustrations created by Mariya Stoyanova are so beautiful, I flipped  through the book a second time to look at them again. The bright colorful mountains and greenery are fascinating, and the characters are adorable. Ms. Stoyanova captured the tone of this story perfectly in her creative illustrations. And at the end of the book, you will find questions for children of several ages. There is also a song with sheet music so you can teach your child. This book has so much. I highly recommend The Burping Pumpkin to children of all ages, especially children 4 to 9 years of age. Even small children will love to hear this one read aloud. And it is definitely a book that should be anywhere children may be.
