Spookley the Square Pumpkin, written and created by Joe Troiano, tells the story of a square pumpkin living in a round pumpkin patch on Holiday Hill Farm. Although Spookley initially faces ridicule from his fellow patch-mates, he goes on to save the day during a terrible storm. As a result, all of the pumpkins in the patch learn that it is the thing that makes you different that makes you special.
“My hope is that Spookley becomes the perfect addition to Halloween traditions,” said Troiano. “His positive message not only makes a good read but also fosters conversation within families.”
The book has sold over 1 million copies worldwide and it is a top selling Halloween title. The story is also available as an app for iPad/iPhone, the Nook and Android platform as well as on DVD. The movie is airing on the Disney Channel.
The message of tolerance and acceptance delivered by Spookley will be heard throughout the United States and Canada at bookstores, movie theaters and pumpkin patches.
The square pumpkin has been also named as official Spokes-Pumpkin of National Bullying Prevention Month by Pacer Organization.
“Bullying is a very real and painful issue that kids are facing,” said Julie Hertzog, director of PACER’S National Bullying Prevention Center. “But they don’t have to face it alone, and bullying can be prevented if we all work together to change the culture. Spookley will help us carry this message to children and adults during National Bullying Prevention Month.”
