Rosco the Rascal Visits the Pumpkin Patch by Shana Gorian


I have read this children’s book geared towards ages 7 – 12 and my review follows the author’s book blurb found on Amazon.

“James and Mandy head to the pumpkin patch with their friendly dog, Rosco, one sunny autumn day, to choose their pumpkins for Halloween. It’s Rosco’s first time at a farm, and he manages to create a little chaos. But when the brother and sister pair find that two bullies are scaring other kids deep inside the corn maze, will Rosco shape up and help out? Join the kids and their rascally dog in this wholesome family adventure, a wonderful autumn read for kids.”

This is a cute and adventurous story for children and revolves around an Autumn/Halloween scenario. There is a nuclear family unit consisting of two parents, one boy and one girl child, and their funny and lovable dog, Rosco. Rosco tries to be good but he does get into hi-jinks at times. As a child reads it is easy to envision being inside a corn maze, and doing all the things they partake in. Understandably the Halloween theme isn’t for everyone, but this is an enjoyable fun read. The flow is easy and truly the grammar and punctuation is perfect. The illustrations are cute but they are so small that I skipped over them. I think they should be bigger to make a better impact on the reader. Nevertheless, five stars!

  1. Thank you so much, Mary!
    Just as a comment: the pictures in the ebook version, if tapped on, will enlarge so they can be viewed at a larger size. I do apologize for their small size in the ebook format (they bother me too!). My ebook formatter was quite concerned about the file size of my books and chose to do it this way. The images in the paperback book are a nice half page size, comparable to other chapter books and young middle grade books. Thanks again for the wonderful review!! 🙂
