Lottie and her class are given an end of term project competition called Big and Small. The problem is, class show-off Penelope Pembleton-Puce always wins.
But this time, Lottie and Gramps come up with a brilliant idea: to grow a giant pumpkin!
With the help of grandad's old vegetable growing tricks, they set about trying to break world records for the biggest vegetable ever. But this pumpkin is fussy, demanding and has a mind of its own, and with Penelope willing to do literally anything to win AGAIN, does Lottie really stand a chance?
A heart-warming story about friendship, family, and growing confidence ... as well as a large vegetable!
A heart-warming story about family , friendship and never giving up. Peppered with charming line illustrations this is perfect for early readers and fans of Walliams, Dahl or Jacqueline Wilson
