About the Story
We can all follow our dreams. Sometimes it just takes the help of our friends.
Alfonso wants to be a Christmas pumpkin, even though the
other pumpkins at the Ghost Town Pumpkin Patch make fun
of him for having such a “goofy idea.” With the help of Hector,
a barn cat, and Marie, a tree rat, and many other friends he
meets along the way, Alfonso goes on a journey to meet Santa
who can make his dream come true. When Alfonso finally
gets his big chance, he makes a choice that will change the
way he thought everything would be. Through it all, he learns
about true friendship, love, and believing in himself.
