Adapted from Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Farmer Boy, it’s an exciting day for Almanzo as the Wilder family visits the county fair! There are contests, races, and good things to eat, and Almanzo can’t wait to see what the judges think of his special pumpkin.
Jody Wheeler’s illustrations are inspired by Garth Williams’ classic artwork.
