On a sunny autumn day brother and sister James and Mandy head to the pumpkin patch with their friendly dog, Rosco, to choose a pumpkin for Halloween. While riding a hay wagon, visiting a petting zoo, and joining the kids on a scavenger hunt, Rosco sometimes makes mischief. But when the kids find trouble deep inside the corn maze, will Rosco shape up and help out? Join the kids and their rascally dog for fun and adventure in Rosco The Rascal Visits The Pumpkin Patch.
Rosco the Rascal is a charming character that reminded me a bit of the beloved Hank the Cowdog, but for a slightly younger audience.
The story is adventurous, exhilarating, and well written for the intended audience of about 6 to 10 years old. The characters will be loved by the readers and kids, both boys and girls, will adore Rosco as he and his human family visit the pumpkin patch.
I know that many families will not care about the content in support of Halloween in this particular book and their tradition of pumpkin carving, but I am aware that some families may be looking for a simple book celebrating the fall season exempt of Halloween and if that is the case then unfortunately you will be disappointed. There is a good deal of Halloween content ranging from Jack-o-lanturn carving to scary scarecrows and pranks in the corn maze, but as I said, most families won’t be bothered by this content.
So in overall, I give Rosco the Rascal Visits the Pumpkin Patch 4 out of 5 stars and will definitely be keeping my eye out for other books in his series.
