The place: Cobtown, USA. The writer: ten-year-old Lucky Hart, whose vivid diary entries evoke the special place she calls home and the many colorful and endearing folks who share her daily joys, her adventures, her traditions and her boundless American spirit.Its three days before the Cobtown Harvest Festival, and Lucky Harts aunt Heddy Peggler cant get to her pumpkin patch. A fallen tree is blocking the entrance. Without Aunt Heddys pumpkins, the big event wont include the annual Pie-Eating Contest, nor will there be any Pumpkin Race. Everyone is disappointed and Aunt Heddys spirit remains low-at least until the pumpkins miraculously appear in her back yard. Theres no time to lose, and no time to ask questions. But how did the pumpkins get there? Only Oinkey, Heddys pet pig knows for sure!
